NASA Sees Hurricane Sandy as the “Bride of Frankenstorm” Threaten U.S. East Coast (Photo credit: NASA Goddard Photo and Video)

Hurricane Sandy is churning off the East Coast.  It is being called a monster storm, Frankenstorm, and a few other names that look great on a headline.  This will, of course, make this the second year in a row in which a storm has affected the East Coast before Halloween.  Last year, it was a Nor’Easter, dumping tons of snow on the Northeast.

As many readers know, I have been participating in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for a while now.  This week will be my sixth year.  Last year, thanks to the Nor’Easter, I began my NaNoWriMo in the dark with a pad and pen.  It was actually one of my most enjoyable NaNoWriMos.

Now, with Sandy out in the Atlantic, it seems that there is the very real chance that once again I could be starting this year’s project the same way I started last year’s novel.  In the dark.  With a pen and a pad.

I actually look forward to it.
