NANOWRIMO -- Are you in this year?

Two weeks until National Novel Writing Month... NANOWRIMO. In case you don't know what that is, listen up. For the last two years (for me-- longer for others) I have accepted the challenge and written a 50,000-word novel during the month of November.

It is truly an exercise it forward movement. No time for revision or even correction. For the month, you just put one word after another.... You win by reaching 50,000 words in 30 days.

There are thousands of people (over 100,000) writing each year. Come join us...

If you want to learn more about it go to http://www.nanowrimo.org/.

If you are a participant and want to send in your statistics as you go along, feel free to email them to me at Lou@LouBelcher.com and I'll be glad to post them. Be sure to tell me how you want your name included (okay to use a pen name if you want) and tell me your current word count. I'll update the list as often as necessary.
Lets all cheer for each other in the comments section of the post....

For now, get going on thinking up a great plot, but don't start writing until 12:01a.m. on 11/1/09.
See you there....

Folks can "buddy" me on the NaNoWriMo site at "sandylender" no spaces. I'm using my experience this year as the prize to a contest that ends on the 24th of October.
