The National Novel Writing Month isn't until November (1st to midnight of the 30th), but I signed up yesterday. That made me the 1008th member in Vancouver. Other than committing to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November, I'm not sure if there are other expectations. I know they also have a TGIO party, probably in December. TGIO stands for "Thank God It's Over", as apparently writing about 2000 words a day is a bigger challenge than it sounds. I signed up because I like a challenge. Also, it seems that it's a good exercise in getting writing DOWN, and I might learn something from this. It's writing, and that's what counts.
