I am now going to be in my own book. This is terrifying because a lot of the other characters are really scary. And I've dragged another of the fair MWC folk in with me.

I hope it won't go bad.

My book now has a plot. I don't know how this happened.

Real people and a plot?  Scary stuff.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Frogg and I were supposed to go in there to derail any chance of there being a plot and instead we caused one to come into being.

This is probably her fault.

Definitely.  The girl is a catalyst, which is not a feline with two shorter legs on one side.  You only have to think about some of her inadvertent adventures to see this.

Will she turn up now to defend herself?

Sounds intriguing, Thatollie.

I'm questionable to participate now. Some real life stuff has my November schedule up the air. At the very least, I'll be writing on the sidelines without officially signing up  :-\

My November schedule is going to be a bit hectic too, but that's no reason to not enter.

Exactly, gets the pistons primed, you know?  ;D

And 500 words is 1/100th of Nano goal,  just 1%!  Less than you need to write every day in November.

Hi everyone. I am also going to participate in NaNoWriMo, and hopefully fail spectacularly!
Why so excited about it? Because this is the first year I actually sat down to participate. I have three pages of a novel waiting to be written since last year and by RandomGods, it will be written til the end!

Also, this showed up in my Twitter feed and it is colourful. A helping hand for everyone who needs that extra little motivation to ring up that word count, a word calendar. http://davidseah.com/node/nanowrimo-word-calendar/
You KNOW you want to vote for the winner for the Short Story Challenge.

If you need some advice on how to fail spectacularly, I'm probably the guy you need to ask.
