I know NaNoWriMo sounds like something Robin Williams would say in the TV show Mork and Mindy, but it's actually an abbreviation for National Novel Writing Month.

I know there are a lot of writers who follow this blog, and I'm sure they are aware of NaNoWriMo, but for those who don't know, it's a literary event that urges you to write 50,000 words in one month. This month. The month of November.You can read more about it here.

If you want to check "write that novel" off of your Bucket list, here's your chance to do it.

Don't just sit there, write something. Begin with an entry into the Comment Contest (details on the sidebar).

I can't imagine writing a novel although I'm a produced movie writer. A novel just seems to daunting though. I think I enjoy blog writing, because each piece is short. Maybe I should try a series of short fiction?

I can't decide if that picture is cute or kinda creepy. I mean, I'm re-reading S. King's CUJO and I really don't want those words reaching up off the page... :)

Yes, Jayne, you do love blogging and it shows! Your posts are very thoughtful, as well as thought-provoking. I think you would do well with short fiction and any other writing genre. Maybe we can try NaNoWriMo together NEXT November.

I know, huh, Madeline!? It is kind of creepy, but then I like creepy. Can't you tell? :-)
