Well, I've officially lost my mind, so I'm going to take a crack at the National Novel Writing Month, which starts on Nov. 1st.  Because I well understand the fact that something of this magnitude is easier if you have friends doing it with you, I'm wondering if anyone else is going to try it this year?

Here's the website- www.nanowrimo.org

I've thought about it in the past, but I've only 1 hour/day of 'disposable' time. It would be a 30-hour novel if I were to try....

Maybe when the kids are older...

I shall also be writing at least 50k (but I wouldn't be surprised if it goes over, I seem to have a tendancy to ramble on somewhat).

Good luck to you all. If it just wasn't November with all these obligations. Maybe I should try this some other month.

Fascinating, and perhaps something I would give a go at if I wasn't already in the process of writing 3 novels already.

Brest of luck to those who try, and do be sure to post the results (finished or not) here at the citadel for us to enjoy.
