A Novel Competition

I was doing my usual web surfing and came across this. The National Write a 50,000 word novel in a month competition.

For history of the competition go here.

For rules and regulations: go here

You have to write 50,000 words from November 1 until midnight on November 30th. The emphasis is quantity and not quality (although I am sure everyone is doing real quality work.)

So how about it?



I have wanted to do this every year since I discovered it in 2005, and every year I have a cast iron reason why I don't... which is probably why I haven't already written the Great South African Novel!! Maybe this year?? Let me know if you decide to go for it...
