November is NaNoWriMo

OK, it's midnight. Can I publish this post now?

Remember when I said that I was going to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days? Today (OK, so it was yesterday) I signed up for National Novel Writers Month, NaNoWriMo for short. (And you thought I was pulling your leg.) Inspired in part by Diane Keaton in “Something’s Gotta Give,” I’ve decided to write my novel on the laptop. In bed. Hey, her character wrote a play in about a week that way, hysterical fits and all.

Of course I would pick the bunny.
Because any day you see a bunny ...

Meanwhile, Google has to be involved in everything, so Blogger (a Google joint) has launched a site for bloggers who are participating in NaNoWriMo, either by writing about the process of writing a 50,000 word novel in a month or by posting their novel on-line as they go. They're calling it NaNoBlogMo. Cute, huh?

Personally, I think 50,000 words is a lot to ask blog readers to wade through. I mean, I have a hard enough time keeping my posts short as it is. So I'm not going to post the novel here, but I will write about the process and my progress. The shin-dig starts November 1st. Look for some posts on my NaNoWriMo experience starting then.

And excerpts, Graham. I promise to post excerpts.

How can this be posted on 10/21 when it is not 10/21 unless you are in China?
