Do I have that right? Is it the National Novel Writing Month? Or something like that? Anyway, I think I'm going to do it. I'm not sure if I should feel like a dork or not, but honestly, I need to kick myself in the buttocks if I am ever going to get some kind of novel length work on paper. I've had this idea kicking around in the back of my brain for literally 20 years. I've written bits of it from time to time but never made it past 60 pages. For some reason the vision in my head never transfers to the page the way I want it to and I stop writing. So I thought maybe the NaNoWriMo would be a good way to give myself permission to write crap and keep going. Has anyone else ever participated in the NaNoWriMo? Was it worthwhile? And does anyone ever publish a novel written in a mad dash over the course of a month? Hell, if half of what I end up with isn't crap it would be worth it. QUICK NOTE: Tia at Fantasy Debut had a copy of "The Book of Joby" to give away. Sign up! You won't want to miss this book.
