November is National Novel Writing Month. That would be better renamed International Novel Writing Month as it has extended way beyond North America where I believe the concept first started. But IntNoWriMo does not have quite the same ring to it, does it.
Anyway, I have signed myself up. The idea is to commit yourself to writing 50,000 words of your novel during the month of November. So I am gearing myself up to rip right into it.
While I'm at it, I shall also be hard at work growing a moustache for Movember, the fund raising initiative. I shall be posting weekly progress pictures. Let me know if you would like to donate to this worthy cause.
