So, I'm a little late getting this post up (as usual), but I'm excited to announce that I am participating in NaNoWriMo!
If you didn't already know, I'm here to tell you that November is national novel writing month. Who decided that? I have no clue. Why November? Probably because it creates a nice alliteration with "national," and "novel," (which is something a writer can appreciate).

You can still join the site (and the madness) at nanowrimo.org. We're an online collective of scattered people attempting simultaneously to write 50,000 words in one month.

If, during the next twenty-odd days, you notice anyone scribbling madly while waiting at a stoplight, attempting to type while walking, or looking generally exhausted while mumbling about plot development, they're probably participating.

I, personally, am continuing work on a piece already in progress. I'm shooting to add 50,000 more words this month. Yes, I might be crazy.

The site allows users to upload a "cover" image. I got really excited about that (big surprise) and spent a lot of time searching for fonts instead of writing. I think it was worth the effort, if for no other reason, than because it makes me feel all fizzy inside whenever I access my NaNoWriMo page. I know, I know, I'm supposed to be a writer, but that really might be the best way to describe the feeling.

In case you're wondering, I used Sleepy Hollow by Filmfonts, and One Two Trees by CloutierFontes on fontspace.
