Okay, so it’s mid-July, a long way from November. November, of course, is National Novel Writing Month. Chris Baty, who is part of the staff on NaNoWriMo (a volunteer I suspect) announced the other day that Amazon had awarded the organization $25,000 for both NaNoWriMo and Young Writers Program in 2009.
I know at least a couple of readers here have participated. If you’re new to the event, the goal is to write a novel in 30 days during the month of November. It’s worth thinking about if you’re a novel writer or just want to be.
I sign up regularly, and proceed to write nothing at all. Maybe this year will be different.
