NaNoWriMo, you know you want to do it

Calling all writers, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) starts in three days. It's not too late to sign up. Come on, you know you want to do it.

10 Reasons To Sign Up.
  1. I am.
  2. You can add me as your writing buddy.
  3. I know you secretly want to.
  4. It'll be fun, except for the parts where you have to force yourself to KYBICAHOK (Keep your but in chair & hands on keyboard.)
  5. We can be writing buddies.
  6. You can kick my rear end when I don't post my word counts, and I can do the same to you.
  7. It'll be cool.
  8. It's definitely doable.
  9. It's free. (But donations are welcome.)
  10. Um, and you'll hopefully actually finish writing a story.

p.s. here's my NaNoWriMo profile, just in case you decide that you absolutely need to add me as your, ahem, writing buddy.


  1. But November is also NaPlWriMo -- or National Playwriting Month! Can I be your writing buddy if I'm writing a play instead of a novel? I DO want to write a novel... But I also need to have this play done by the first of December, because I'm a crazy person.

    Wait a sec. Why is November ripe for writing both novels and plays? Shouldn't they each get their own month? It would be much easier on me, anyway.

  2. Hmmmm I wonder which came first, Play writing month or Novel writing month....

    Off to google. . .

    HA! NaPlWriMo started in 2006, whereas NaNoWriMo started in 1998. Looks like the playwrights decided to build on a good thing. :)

    And absolutely! Let's be buddies anyway. We'll have to do it the hard way via email, but that's all good. lol

  3. You can write a novel in November and a play in April. Check out
