Best of luck to all my NaNoWriMo* friends!
May your outline cards lead you true.
May your inspiration never falter.
May your typewriter be like a loyal steed, graceful and noble,
carrying your every thought with well-inked intent.
May your pens and pencils be the very extension of your imagination.
May your laptop always find a coffee house electrical outlet.
Write On, O Authors, Write On!
* NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month.
[from the NaNoWriMo About page]
"National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000 word, (approximately 175 page) novel by 11:59:59, November 30. Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved."
