I've joined the thousands of other crazies who will try to write a 50,000 word (or more) novel in one month. I happened to think of it today, and when I checked the website I found out that today is the start of this year's event. It is NaNoWriMo, which is National Novel Writing Month.
Those that meet the goal are deemed winners. There's no prize, it's more of a prestige thing. Actually, it's a good way to get off your butt and write something, already, and I dig that.
