November is for...

Depending on who you ask, November means different things. Ask the motor-sport fans (like hubby) and they say its the end of the season and when the V8 championship gets entertaining. Ask the horse-racing fans and they say Melbourne cup and Spring Racing Carnival. Ask a Generation Y, and they'll say Christmas Parties - I have four Christmas party invites for November because December is too busy.

But if you ask a writer they say NaNoWrMo - National Novel Writing Month. Described as thirty days and nights of literary abandon it challenges writers to produce 50 000 words in 30 days in November. I've never managed the 50 000 words, probably because I've got a huge dose of edit-while-I-write-itis. But I love the challenge and it brings writers together - one of our local coffee chains sets aside tables for NaNo participants.

Are you doing NaNoWrMo this month? If so I wish you BICHOKAW (bottom in chair, hands on keyboard and write).

Fiona, I was going to do this - & still might but I've been thinking of working on short stories this time around. i have a few I want to get done to submit, so may be the right time. :))

Since I wrote this I found out that November is also peanut butter lovers month. So if you choose not to do NaNo you could always make peanut butter on toast and celebrate November that way.
