National Novel Writing Month

Is anybody planning on participating in National Novel Writing Month in November? I'm trying to come up with some ideas for it. And I would find the link to its web site only right now I'm exceptionally lazy. All you have to write is 50,000 words, which is actually a novella, but likely not that hard to do.

I have a rough idea for it, with the caveat that I'm not going to take it all that seriously. Otherwise I don't think I'd participate at all. Anybody else feel like burning themselves out WORSE than they already have been day jobs, paying gigs, blogging, and writing other types of fiction? Ha.

I did NaNoWri Month in 2002 (total 3000 words) and in 2003 (total 1000 words). This year I bet two of my friends $20 that I would get to 10,000 words first.

There is also a three-day novel-writing contest here in Vancouver. This year, I had a Sikh wedding to attend (five days of partying!). Next year?

Ah, having upped the ante having a paying gamble at stake, sounds like a good way to motivate!

Yeah, I might only get 1000-3000 words in myself, but I am going to try!
