And what is there to get excited about in November, you ask.
It's the month of two ambitious writing challenges that, should you decide to accept them, will have you swimming in words.
November Chapbook Challenge at Poetic Asides:
Write one poem a day in November (Robert Brewer will post daily prompts), use December to preen those poems, then submit your best 10-20 pages - 1 poem/page - to Robert by January 2/2010 to enter the chapbook challenge.
NaNo WriMo (National Novel-writing month)
Write a short novel (50,000 words) during the month of November (quantity, not quality is the watchword here). Read all the details at the NaNo WriMo web site.
