November is National Novel Writing Month. The idea is to write 50,000 words from November 1 to November 30. To officially participate you can go to http://www.nanowrimo.org/ and register. The regional groups are fantastic. We usually get together for a write-in at least once a week. And you can get advice and help on the forums. If you are a writer, it’s a great thing. I have yet to make the word count. But I will keep trying. Each year, I get a higher word count, so maybe this is my year. The only problem is that winter is an inspirational killer for me. If I could spend a month on the beach with the sun shining, I just know I could write a novel. If a frog had wings, he wouldn’t bump his ass. No, the truth is, that is an excuse. But no excuses this year. I am going to do it. I am going to do it right here in East Tennessee. I am going to do it with the cold air seeping in through my old windows and unsealed doors. 50,000 words in November.
