November is National Novel Writing Month!

That's right -- there is actually a National Novel Writing Month, and it starts today! is an organization that challenges people to write all throughout the month of November and ultimately piecing together an entire 50,000 word novel.

It sounds far-fetched, but apparently had over 100,000 participants and over 15,000 winners last year!

You have until November 30th, so get cracking on your typewriters and notebooks. If you are taking on this daunting task, e-mail us and let us know so we can feature you on the blog this month!
