November is "Nanowrimo!" AKA National Novel Writing Month. To get involved, all you have to do is attempt to produce a 50,000 word "first draft" of a novel ... between Nov. 1 & 30. You can read more about it at http://www.nanowrimo.org/ - there's an active group in our area(USA::Regions::Washington::Tacoma/Pierce County), and they've started a calendar on their discussion page. In the spirit of Nanowrimo, I plan to host our own "Rough Draft" write-ins on Monday evenings in Nov., from 6:30PM to whenever at the Pacific NW Coffee Co.
