NaNoWriMo is Just Around the Corner

It's that time of year again folks; NaNoWriMo is just a few weeks away.

For those who have never heard of it, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a yearly event that challenged writers to do a minimum of 50,000 words during the month of November.  The prize?  Simply knowing that you have achieved something awesome.

I wasn't able to participate last year but I'm ready and eager to get going this year.  Thanks to my recent vacation I have managed to get my basic concept down to two outlines.  I really might have to toss a coin to decide which one.

I owe a lot to NaNo.  It is thanks to this contest and more importantly to my dear friend Cherie for persuading me to do it, that I got back to writing.

I know we all have our projects, but sometimes it can be good to put those down and just have a bit of fun with our writing (yeah I know, "we must suffer for our art" ;) ).  And even if you don't enter this year, you might be able to inspire someone else to do it.  Who knows, it could be a life changing event for them.  It certainly was for me.
