You know who holds the record for the most losses by a major league pitcher?
Denton True "Cy" Young.
Yeah, that guy. The one they named the award for, the one that honors the best major league pitcher each year. The guy that pitched 21 seasons, the one who still - even close to a hundred years after he retired, in 1911 - holds the record for the most wins by a major league pitcher.
Total losses: 316.
Total wins: 511.
A lesson for us all.
Especially for me. This is my second attempt at NaNoWriMo. I failed last year, only racking up 47,000 words ("winning" means you wrote 50K during the month of November). But that was last year. Ol' Cy lost a bunch of games, too, and it didn't stop him.
So it can't stop me.
I probably won't post full-blown articles here for awhile, just brief notes on how things are going, with the occasional Scent of the Day comment, or something short like that. I'll be back in full swing in December.
