I have a permanent short-circuit between my brain and my fingers; it used to be called an "idiopathic tremor", but the quacks now call it an "essential tremor" ... they are not amused when I tell them that as far as I'm concerned it is non-essential, unnecessary, de trop, etc.! But I still have to live with it.
But it's not that that stops me doing NaNoWriMo … simply that I don't have a novel in me. I could give up the time and try to write 2000+ words of plotless gibberish each day, but see no point in that. So, as the dragons say, "I'm out!"
