National Novel Writing Month
Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month? Me neither. It even has a website, and it's cooler than it sounds. National Novel Writing Month is a novel writing personal challenge. The premise: Put all those fears of writing your own novel aside and get that shit done in 30 days. The challenge: Write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30 (Don't worry. Pep talks are provided). How it works: You create an account, sign up with a region (it's international!), and get to writing! Some regions even offer places to go write in... like an independent bookstore or local library. What better way to spend un-/underemployment than writing under a stressful time constraint and meeting other masochists?
Obviously (and regretably), I am too late in bringing this information to you (I know... bad blogging). And it's not like a week's worth of catch-up is all that appealing (it sounds like a nightmare, acually). But you can always write a script with them in April and there's also next November! Log this into your Google calendars and get to brainstorming, nerds! All the cool homogays are doing it.
