NaNoWriMo is just around the corner!

It's that time again.

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) has officially opened for its seventh noveling season, and we'd love to have you for another raucous and productive November.

To take part, just head to NaNoWriMo.org and read more about it!

Basically, you sign up, create a profile, and then...

...begin your novel-planning procrastination by reading through all the great advice and funny stories in the forums. Post some stories and questions of your own. Get excited. Get nervous. Eat lots of chocolate and pamper yourself in preparation for the fiction-fueled escapade to come.

At midnight, local time on November 1, begin writing your novel. Your goal is to write a 50,000-word novel by midnight, local time, on November 30th.

This is not as scary as it sounds. It's only 1700 words a day (more or less). No interviews or phone calls, since it's fiction!

Anyone want to give this a try with me, for fun??

Are you writing a Novel? Is it FUN ??? I started mine 7 [give or take] years ago and while those years have mostly been fun . . . . . mostly except the writing part. But . . . I will if you will. Einar

I'm giving it a good shot this year. When I left my job three years ago, writing a novel was one of the top three things I had on my list of reasons. This is definitely a FUN way to get a running start at it.
