Those of you having trouble meeting your NaNo targets may enjoy this exchange between several professional authors.

My NaNo is up to 62,000 words, which would be more impressive if I hadn't written the first 60,000 words before November...

An off-the-cuff story I wrote last night. I was trying to develop a character for a larger story I'm working on, and thought roleplaying her in the Wolves Glen Pub might help me get a handle on her. She was asked for a story, and I realised she'd be likely to tell one with a religious moral - which is a challenge for an atheist/agnostic coming from a Christian background. I was very tempted to go trawling the Net for something suitable and file off the serial numbers, but fool pride demanded I write something original instead.

All things considered, I'm very pleased with how it turned out; I think the best stories tell you something about the speaker, and this one certainly does. ('Zim' has nothing to do with Invader Zim, BTW - it's short for 'Zumurrud', an Arabic name that literally means 'emerald'.)
