National Novel Writing Month starts today, thousands of folk all over the world, banding together in the common goal of writing a complete novel in one month's time.
Professionals (Lynn Viehl, for example) and hobbyists alike, joining together in NaNoWriMo's joys and sorrows. To meet the 50,000 word count goal, you need to write 1700 words a day, every day, on your project. Some will fail at the starting gate, others will falter somewhere along the way, and the furious few will skate across the finish line on November 30th with some kind of finished product.
My hat is off to all of them. Good luck! My prayers go with you.
Me? I'm not doing it. And today, as I've got tons of writing projects on the runway and it's the official first day of NaNoWriMo, boy am I glad. Glad, glad, happy, happy. Yea.
