NaNoWriMo

What the heck is that?!?


National Novel Writing Month.  A challenge to write a complete novel in just thirty days, from November 1 to November 30.  Last year over 120,000 writers entered and only 20,000 completed.  The requirements for completing?  50,000 words.  It's all about shaking off the shackles of perfection and writing.  That's only 1667 words per day.  Hmmm...that's kind of scary thinking about it that way.  So I won't.

Wish me luck.

By all means, good luck. If I had more free time on my hands, I'd take a shot at it myself.

Thanks, all. Let's hope it goes well. I'm not sure I've got the time to do this, but I'll give it a go. Luckily, I'm pretty good at composing in my head, which I'm pretty sure isn't cheating, so I'll just have to do a brain dump. We'll see how that works :)
