We are 29 days away from the start of National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. If you have never attempted this, I throw the gauntlet at your feet.
The challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Sound easy? Sound impossible? It's both. ;-) What I can tell you is when you get to the 31st and you have accomplished what you set out to do. There is no feeling like it. As soon as the clock ticks into Nov 1st you will start waiting anxiously for next year.
I'll be there.
