I would be remiss to mention NaNoWriMo started this week. National Novel Writing Month is a crazy-cool idea challenging young writers to create a 50,000-word novel from November 1 through November 30. They have message boards, inspirational stories and emails, and plenty of encouragement along the way. If you’ve always wanted an excuse to write a novel, try NaNoWriMo – thousands of other folks are doing it. And who says writing is a solitary process?
