So, Camp NaNoWriMo started yesterday and as promised to myself I jumped headlong into it. I've started working on a novel; and even though the plot seemed sketchy, I still took the plunge.

How many times has it happened that we really care about something deeply, only to not pursue it seriously? I know it happens to me frequently enough.
