NANOWRIMO

Of course, writers and literary people know that today is NANOWRIMO, and I don't need to really expand on that, google it if you don't know. The goal, essentially is to write a novel in a month, again, following the Stephen King Model, who writes that you can indeed finish a novel in a month. I read something tonight that I think is particularly relevant:
Even though the goal is 50,000 words, it's important to remember that writing is a craft, an art form, and we'd do well to remember that. 
I've been doing really well with my 3500 words a day (...the excercize...um...let's just say it's a LONG way to San Francisco. I'm sure I'll get there, eventually...) for the past 3 days, no reason not to continue. My novel? Well I think it's going to be really cool, I'm really excited about it, but keeping it a secret. For now...
