[thechat] NaNoWriMo

Hi all,

Just to give you a bit of a heads-up: don't forget that the rapidly-
approaching month of November is, once again, National Novel-Writing
Month (NaNoWriMo).

The goal? You've got one calendar month to produce a 50,000-word novel
(well... novella, really, but let's not be picky).

Make it, and all the glory of being a _genunine writer_ awaits you. How
many of your loser friends have talked about writing a novel, but never
done it? Who cares, because you WILL have! Screw them.

Fail? Who cares, at least you had a go. And while it sounds like an
extreme form of self-torture, it's actually an incredibly fun challenge
to set yourself.

I've done NaNoWriMo the last two years, and had an absolute ball (crossing
the 50K mark both times, incidentally... huzzah for me!)

If you wanna learn more about NaNoWriMo, check out the official site at

It would be great if some fellow evolters joined me... let's face it,
November is a pretty dull month otherwise. What else do you have to do?
Nothin', that's what.
