Hey all. Thought I'd take a second to plug a very fun creative writing project I've been involved with in past years, and which I'm seriously considering participating in again this year.
National Novel Writing Month
The short of it is it's a personal creative writing project, mostly freeform with just a few guidelines, which runs the duration of the month of November. Tens of thousands of people do it every year and, even though the projects are individual, they can all have fun and/or commiserate together as the month goes on.
Anyone at all interested in creative writing ought to check it out:http://www.NaNoWriMo.org
