Here’s your rainy day forecast for a weekend of fun.
NaNoWriMo: Calling all aspiring novelists, now’s your chance to throw caution to the wind and write dangerously for one month of literary abandon. WriMos across the nation are hunkering down and slamming out a 50,000 novel in 30 days time, including a few of your favorite 707 contributors (Crissi Langwell and Heather Irwin, to name a few). Will you be joining us? Check out the local board at nanowrimo.org/en/regions/usa-california-sonoma, and start writing your own novel (it only take 1,667 words a day, what do you have to lose – besides sleep?). nanowrimo.org
P.S. I am writing an article about those of you who participate in NaNoWriMo. If you’d like to be included (and can tear yourself away from your novel), email me at email@example.com telling me why you WriMo and anything else you want to share about the experience. Don’t forget to share your name, age, city, and best way to reach you.
