It's almost that time of year again!

WOW!!! I can't believe it's been almost a year since NaNoWriMo2005.
For those of you who don't know what it is; it stands for National Novel Writing Month. During the month of November thousands of caffine addicted creative types throw all literary rules and grammatical correctness out the window and try to crank out 50,000 words in 30 days.

Sound easy? HA! Try it I dare you! I double DOG dare you!!!

Just click on the title of this post and sign up. I did it last year, and surpassed the 50G mark 1 hour before the deadline. No one has to read what you wrote and despite all my jokes about repeating the same word 50,ooo times I didn't cheat. That I'm proud of.

So I have a bit over a week to get my short story done. I would like to have it ready to submit by Monday morning. That means it will be early and that always looks good. Then I have a couple weeks breathing space then I'm off to Nanoworld. *G*

OMG Okay I registered! LOL if i add to a word count remains to be seen. I am not a writer whose muse cooperates well under pressure. its something I need to work on so maybe this will help. hmmm just need a solo project I think I can write.

Congrats on finishing your Christmas Short. technical difficulties like typos and grammar boo boo's are always hard for a writer to see, So its awesome that you had someone read it over! I know it will be awesome I really liked the premise!

WooHoo Mo! Go for it! Don't worry about plot or flow or anything like that. The whole point is to turn off your internal editor and let your muse have free reign.

Hey mum. Bummer the traffic sucked so bad but I'm glad you made it home. If you click on the counter it will shoot you to the site, and you can created your own. It's just as matter of cut and paste after you choose how you want it to look. Anybody can have me as a buddy *G* I'm listed under FeyRhi. There's a shocker. LOL I have you and Mo listed already.
