Stuff to click on

Monday, October 22


Man... who comes up with this stuff? And why, oh why do I feel obliged to participate? I mean it... isn't there enough to do during the month of November without agreeing to
  1. Post to my blog every single day
  2. Attempt to write a 50,000 word (roughly 175 page) novel

Maybe it will be fun, maybe it won't. But I am going to give it the old college try anyways. Wanna join me?

NaBloPoMo - aka National Blog Posting Month. I participated last year, and came pretty darn close to posting every day. Maybe this year I will stick to it and think of something interesting for all y'all to read every day in November. So tell me - any suggestions for themes or topics?

NaNoWriMo - aka National Novel Writing Month. I have to be honest, this scares the bejeezus out of me. Why can't it be National Cookbook Writing Month? But I have always wanted to at least try to write a novel (I was a lit major in college), so maybe this will inspire me to get a start on things. Or not. We'll see!

Wish me luck... and if you are participating let me know. Maybe we can cheer each other on, or celebrate with martini's on December 1 if we survive!

I've got about 200 pages written of a novel. I'd be happy if I could just finish it! :)

I have fantasies about writing a novel, but doubt it'll ever happen. And definitely not in November. I'd have to do the writing during a month when there aren't a couple major holidays on the way!

I love to write. Unfortunately I never finish the stories. Maybe someday.

Wow - good luck on the novel! I don't think I'd ever have enough self-discipline to do that!

Just wanted to let you know about a free giveaway at my site this week - come check it out! Thanks!
