If the title of this post makes no sense to you, perhaps you've never heard of NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month. That would be when writers all over the world attempt to write 50,000 words between November 1st and November 30th. They (we) will be writing the rough draft of a novel. Some of these novels may eventually be published. Will mine be one of them? Will yours? I'm in! Sign up here, if you too want to be a crazy writer.
