A friend of mine, in comment to one of my posts, asked if I was going to do the NaNoWriMo.
I, oblivious as usual, wrote back that I’d consider it if I knew what the heck he was talking about!
The “National Novel Writing Month,” as he explained, will be coming up this fall, and sounds like one fun challenge to write 50,000 words in a month’s time. Intrigued! So I best practice up and get ready for the big event.
And thanks to my friend for bringing it up!
