First of all thanks Edkdolce for pointing me in this direction.
NaNoWriMo stand for National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel starting November 1st and finish by midnight, November 30th. I've always wanted to write a novel. I've actually started and never finished a few. Maybe I can actually start and finish one with this challenge.
What an amazing site! I'm most excited about the Write-a-thon Fundraiser. Stay tuned for more info on my upcoming challenge.
I'm looking for sponsors. Click here if you're interested.
