Novel Challenge

Friday, 23 September 2005

Several months ago I ran across "this website":http://www.nanowrimo.org where you can sign up for the "National Write A Novel in a Month" contest.  Apparently November is "National Novel Writing Month," though I'm not sure by whom thus declaration was made.  Basically, you can register via the "NANOWRIMO":http://www.nanowrimo.org  website and become part of a virtual accountability group where you commit to writing 50,000 words in 30 days beginning at midnight on November 1 and ending at midnight on November 30, posting your word count and an excerpt from each days writing.

I've got coffee.  I've got toothpicks.  I've got a Chiropractor.  Who needs sleep? 

The only things I don't have are a plot, credible characters and a genre.

I'm gonna go for it!

Well, I guess I'm officially acclimated.

It's September 14 and for the past week or so I've been enjoying the break in the heat; the daytime highs are now only in the mid-90's!

A couple of weeks ago I was telling a friend of mine that just moved from Idaho that I was glad we were finally getting some cool weather.  "Cool weather?!”  She scoffed, “It's 95 degrees!"

Alex entered his first official competition this past weekend.  The Georgetown Main Street Program sponsored a “Lego My Georgetown” building contest for kids 5-14.  The kids were to build some portion of downtown as it might look in the year 2055.  The Georgetown effort was modeled after the Lego 50th anniversary “Brick to the Future” national competition.  Both Chris and Alex actually registered, but Alex used all of our Legos on his creation, so Chris deferred to his older brother.

If Robert Frost were a cynic, would the poem have ended differently?


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
and looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;
