Hello all, your probably thinking, 'Good god... what is Nathan doing now and why did he have to include me... I am so young and innocent and...' yeash right like i'd believe it of most of you :P

Anyways! NaNoWriMo is upon us again, for those of you who know what NaNoWriMo is and are already going to do it, GREAT! You dont have to red the rest of the e-mail if you dont want to, but be warned it starts in two weeks so head along and sign up if you havent already!

Those of you who know what NaNoWriMo is and dont want to do it anyway, that is also fair enough, I've talked to enough people this morning and know how daunting it can be for some, especially those that just do not have the time. But I hthink it would be cool and urge you to consider it more unless you have for hours and hours and are deadly sick of the subject, I'm doing it for my first time, and I think it would be awesome to be able to do it with the people on the net that I believe are the very best writers I know!

On that note, there are a fair few of you I sent this out to and I really hope to get at least ten of you. I've hidden your e-mail addys from one another so you cant badger someone else on the list to join so you dont feel so bad about not joining.

Anyway WHAT IS NANAWRIMO! National Novel Writers Month, starts November first, then you have 30 days to write a novel 50,000 words or more! I know i know your thinking, "Thats impossible, I couldnt do that" or "Do I get paid?" NO! It is notimpossible, and unfortunately no, you dont get paid... but think of the experience! Always thinking " always wanted to write a novl but never have the time" this is a prime time to do it, while there is a deadline on your back you can do things you could never normally do!! And just think, even if the novel is rubbish after the 50 k, you still have a skeletal body of work to mess with and eidt the crud out of into something amazing!

I am leading the net-excursion to NaNoWriMo, and we will all join up on their boards, and if you'd like, support one another in this challenging venture! If you dont want to be part of the group, but still want to go alone, then go for it! But I really think this is a great opportunity for all! And you should all consider it!

The NaNoWriMo site is at www.nanowrimo.org you'll know what to do whnen you get there! I'll meet you in the forums if you have decided to come and take tthe chalenge with me!

Hoi, Godric is another of my many sign-ins.
Sorry about the confusion of all the mention of an e-mail.

I e-mailed this out to all my writer friends, and I thought it would be something of a crime if the writers of Santharian Dream didnt have the opportunity to join in. I heard about this a few days ago from a friend, and thoguht it was a great Op.

My Sign-In on the boards is NuGgY. Feel free to join me and any of my friend's daring enough to take the challenge, feel free to take the challenge and not include yourself with me and my friends, is your choice, but definately consider it.

I'm doing this too, but I yet have to figure out how to write 1667 words every afternoon in about 2 hours available. I'll have to do almost all of it on the weekends...
