November should be an exciting month for me. I've joined the National Novel Writing Month challenge at www.nanowrimo.org
. One month of unedited writing spanning 175 pages. This should be interesting to see what I can come up with. According to the rules, I am not supposed to edit anything that I write that month. I will do all the editing in December. It'll be fun keeping up with other's in the challenge and seeing what they conjure up. =)
