What Are You Doing in November?

November is National Novel Writing Month, “NaNoWriMo” for short.

NaNoWriMo encourages writers to crank out the first draft of a novel in the month of November, a mere 30 days. This starts in less than two weeks.

(Don’t complain about not having enough advance warning, because I mentioned this eleven and a half months ago. That’s almost a year to prepare.)

Actually, the advance warning was for me. Even though I’m not a novelist, I hoped to take part this year; I planned to; I wanted to. But more pressing things will prevent me from the experience. Maybe next year.

However, all is not lost. I can still take part, albeit on a lesser scale. Check out part of an email message I received this week:

“In November 2013, Grammarly will throw its hat into the ring [for NaNoWriMo] – but with a twist. We plan to organize the largest group of authors to ever collaborate on a novel; we’re calling the project #GrammoWriMo, and we’ve published a blog entry here to provide additional information on participation.”

I told them I’m in. Perhaps I’ll have an opportunity to collaborate on a novel. Maybe I’ll take part in NaNoWriMo after all. Well sort of.

Care to join me?

Ok, I’m not writing a novel but do have a MMS on my desk. I’m in. The world runs on deadlines, and it’s time I put one to this project.
