    I know some of you like to write fiction. Well, it's that time of year again. November 1st is almost here.

    Will you be joining thousands of others in writing your own novel in just 30 days? Think it's impossible to write 50,000 words (something that tries to make sense) in only a single month?

    I've succeeded in doing it once. I'm trying again this year.

    Go sign up when you're ready. Details can be found at http://www.nanowrimo.org.

    I'm giving it serious consideration. I've never tried before, and have no idea what I'd write, but it sounds more and more fun with each passing year. Despite all the work involved.

    I've done it, written 50,000 words in a month, but never on the month it was demanded. I have a goodly number of stories under the belt. Just finished another 5000 word number.

    It's interesting, I'll take a pass. To many projects going.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I wish you success to the finishline, as well.
    As for how he forgot such a major event? I'm not sure, but I can't wait to find out.

    me either. such a huge thing happening is hard to forget. I have so many things running through my head right now. "did he this or maybe it was this"!
