I have a Bachelors degree in English Lit, writing has always been a hobby of mine but I'm currently working full time in an unrelated field since being a "writer" doesn't pay my bills. I've attempted NaNo three or four times and was wildly unsuccessful! But this year I'm planning on becoming a full-fledged hermit and applying the use of medieval torture devices to keep me from procrastinating.
I'd love to keep in touch with anyone who feels they can be particularly motivating, and I'll try to be as well. :)
