November is National Novel Writing Month. Participants are challenged to do 50,000 words (about 175 pages) by midnight, November 30th. Hop over to the Web site to learn more.

I think I’m going to give it a shot. Let me know if you’ll consider joining me!

    Go for it . I don’t have the patience or the story. Is there anything there’s not a month for?

  2. I’ve never seen a respect your local blogger month – or even day!

  3. I’m in. But after a quick start real life has intervened to keep me from adding. There’s only so many blogs a working stiff can write for, after all!

    Respect Your Blogger Month. Hmmm. What would be a good month for that?

  4. I kind of remember seeing that, Dean. I’m sorry I didn’t get to it before!

    I love an excuse to tell everyone to leave me alone. Heck, I may even skip cooking.

    Let’s write the story of our country’s future:
    Sounds a lot like “Brave New World”! OOops, that’s been done!

    Can we write a story of our future which is different than this? A story in which character trumps all. Character, ever refined by hard work, polished by virtue and generosity of spirit! Motivation not by money, power, or revenge. But Character. Uplifting eachother.

    Maybe it could be the story of the blogs which pricked us out of complacency and salvaged the spirit of self-reliance, rallied the conservatives, and revitalized the thought of a kinder, gentler nation, with a thousand points of light made bright by our volunteerism to many worthy causes.

    Maybe it would include the meeting of people face-to-face when blogs are closed down in attempt to squelch 1st amendmanet rights?

    Maybe it would include wigs, masks, padding, and other disguises to protect the true patriots?

    One character by day, another by night? Maybe it would not be revealed until the end of the novel which characters were one in the same?

    Maybe it would be National Treasure 3?

    If we were thinking along the same lines, sorry to be a spoiler! Then again, I will not be pursuing this as I have a multitude of demands on my time… everyone feel free to take any of my comment ideas and make them your own.
