Because I Have So Much Free Time

Wait, I don't.
Anyway, I'm taking the challenge, finally, of NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Write 50, 000 words in one month! I need some buddies to do this, anyone game?

I'm also climbing back on the horse of perpetual preparation for Clarion Writer's Workshop 2010, and I feel especially motivated by the news that the admission window has been moved back to December 1st.

Life simply isn't busy enough right now, between gardening, homeschooling, UU-ing, teaching and academic publishing/freelancing (and pretty much in that order of priority). It feels oddly secondary to mention that my proposal for the Virginia Tech "Gender, Bodies and Technology" conference was recently accepted --I'd actually forgotten about that news until just now.

Let me know, gotta go! It's Farnham, ya'll!

Hey, I'm doing it, sorta. I've done nano twice before and "won" both times. This year i'm writing a short story a day, partially to have a new challenge, and partially to have more story drafts to pick from come Clarion applications.

Look me up on nanowrimo if you want, izanobu is my handle there.

Good luck!

Excellent! So it can be done. I like your idea, that's obviously going to produce a load of raw material.

I'll look you up when I figure out how!
