National Novel Writing Month. Also known as November. It starts in 7 days.
Never heard of this? Here's the basic idea.
During NaNoWriMo people sign up to write a 50,000 word novel during the 30 days of November. The basic idea is to write quantity, not necessarily quality.
Some people do this every year. Seriously. Word Nerd has yet to participate in this event, but not for lack of thinking about it.
Here's the skinny. If you want sign up, go to NaNoWriMo website.
Also, if you're here in the Fox Valley region of Wisconsin, there's going to be a kick-off party for local NaNo crazies (er, participants) at 7 p.m. on OCt. 28 at the Barnes and Noble in Appleton.
Maybe Word Nerd will be there. Maybe.
