Bits of writing challenge

My short stories are proceeding at hiccup pace. I cannot find enough time to dedicate to them, even though some paragraphs are so clear and organized in my mind that they only await to be written. I guess that’s part of the game, not to have enough time for everything; but the struggle brings in more fun, I guess, and so I’m up for the challenge. And we’re talking short stories here; I wonder what I’m gonna do with the NaNoWriMo contest on November 2010. That’s going to be even more than a challenge.
