No it's not some bizzare sexual kink, its National Novel Writing Month.
The challange? Write one 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Yes, you read that right one month do write the whole damn thing. Quantity not quality here.
The way it works is that you submit it to them for a word count at the end of the month, and voila! thats it. Its more to promote people actually writing and putting their ideas onto paper, virtual or not, than producing the next Stephen King.. though some past winners have gone on to be published.
Its a nice idea, and I'm using it to push through my Twilight ideas into a more concrete form. Help me scult the shape of it better, and polish some of the plot holes I have atm...
Anyone care to join me? rinnywee put me onto it and is also working on her own opus, will anyone take the challenge?
