Thanksgiving, No-Shave-November, there are alot of things going on this month.
So apparently November is National Write A Novel Month, who knew?
I found out just last week and decided to do it. The initial goal is to write 50,000 words, or 175 pages, before November 30th. Quantity, rather than quality, is the highest importance. The focus is just getting it done as a rough draft, and then December is the month of revising and editing.

I'm writing under a pen name, and have no intention of trying for publication, this is just for fun. I started a bit late though, so I'm four or five days behind. I'm hoping to catch up soon.
I figure this is better than No-Shave-November :p
