Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month? If you’ve always had a burning desire to write the great American novel, head on over to nanowrimo.org and sign up. After you have an account with them, you can submit your work as you go along. They’ll keep track of the work count and declare you a winner if you manage to to crank out 50,000 words by midnight November 30. I’d try it myself, but I can’t even manage to write a blog post a day.
