I haven't posted on here much, being busy with my blog and other stuff, in fact I haven't written much fiction lately, but I thought people should know about NaNoWriMo. You have 30 days to write 50,000 words from Nov. 1st to Nov 30th. I just entered. That means I will have to write over 1600 words a day. Most of my short stories have been between 700 and 2000 words so this will be a feat for me. According to the rules I can outline and develop characters before then so I will be busy doing that. Wish me luck.
I'll be cheering for you all the way! NaNoWriMo sort of reminds me of my poem-a-day month - therefore, if my experience is anything like this, I'd advise you to buy coffee (or caffeinated tea), get a lot of sleep before the moth begins, have a very good idea where he story will lead to, be determined and to never give up! And you'll need all that (especially the caffeine and the determination) because, like I said, if it's anything like my experience, you'll feel like passing out o0n the keyboard (which, based on experience, is very likely to happen).

You can do it! I would love to do this next year... gotta finish this last semester up... but I have a novella waiting for this kind of commitment to writing that I'd love to hammer out in a month. Tips and tricks you learn this time around would be awesome for next year!
