Just a reminder, for any writer-ly leaning readers of mine.
National Novel Writing Month (a.k.a. NaNoWriMo) begins on November 1st.
The idea is simple, really: write 1,667 words a day for one month (the organizers, if you can call them that, picked November), without editing or much advance thought at all, towards that novel that you’ve had in the back of your head for years, and get ‘er done.
I, however, seem to have gotten started early. I’m so tempted to post pieces of my novel-in-progress on my blog. But even though I’ve got that Creative Commons badge in the left-hand sidebar, I’m still a bit spooked by the idea of people stealing my words and claiming them for their own.
I still might post bits and pieces of it… or I might make y’all beg me for it. I’m kinda mean (and needy) that way.
Or maybe not.
