Ze Frank’s Invocation for Beginnings has becoming something of a ritual for me when I’m trying to get moving, but especially today, as the madness of NaNoWriMo starts. Yes, I am constantly writing and November isn’t the only time of the year I’m starting a new project. But this is my 14th November madness, and since there have been a few bad years in there when these 30 days of “literary abandon” have been the thing that’s kept me going, I don’t feel inclined to skip.

So we come round again. May our FILDI be stronger than our Cheese Monster.
