okay, so i hate to sound like a broken record, but since i am in fact a broken record i guess i'll accept that fact and go ahead and post this.
november is national novel writing month, as some informed people may know. Nano-wrimo stands for that whole mouthful of words. So the basic idea of nanowrimo's website is that you pledge, with many other aspiring and already thriving novelists, to start and finish the first draft of a 50,000 word novel during the month of november. at first i was skeptical, but now i think i'm going to go for it and i invite all others to join me. you can update your word count every day, look at excerpts from other novels, read about the struggles and triumphs and utter fails of all the other writers on there. Should be fun. and feel free to make fun of me if you see me wasting time on the website. for more information or to sign up for the challenge, visit the website. (plus, you get a cool badge saying you're a participant).
disclaimer, i am in no way affiliated with this project or website, except that i'm participating and want people to know about it. And no, i'm not getting paid to spread the news all over the place on every kind of social media i have. i've just been doing that b/c i'm a loser and have nothing else to do. :)
