November is National Novel Writing Month

Also known as Nanowrimo for those in the know.  There's probably a fair amount of the population that would like to consider themselves writers but never get around to writing much of anything.  I would also probably be included in said group...the lack of regular posting around here seems to pretty obviously indicate that.  It's basically a fake deadline thing to encourage you to write 50,000 words in the month of November.  That would be almost 2,000 words a day.  And November has Thanksgiving in it.  I'm thinking of using the month to crank out some sort of creative writing endeavor.  Maybe you could too.

50,000 words is a lot easier with copy and paste.

When I was a freshman in high school Dave I convinced myself I was writing a novel. It was about two brothers, a Samurai and a Ninja or something, reclaiming their kingdom from an evil chancellor/dragon guy who wanted to take them to war.

I think if I started a novel today it would be a little different. At least I hope so, yikes.
