As I’ve written elsewhere, I’m participating in National Novel Writing Month 2010. I’m quite excited about my work-in-progress (WIP), a fantasy novel that threatens to balloon to fantastic, possibly even epic, proportions.

Wordsmith Wednesday: Get Ready for NaNoWriMo

"NaNoWriMo"? What is that, something Mork had for breakfast? Or something he and Mindy did on their honeymoon? In fact, "NaNoWriMo" is "short" (how about if we stick to NaNo from here on out?) for National Novel Writing Month.
