A couple of months ago, when I started posting creative writing here on my blog, I learned about something called National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. The idea is to use the month of November to focus and write a 50,000 word novel. I thought that it sounded really cool and wanted to participate when November rolled around.

Yay, I’m so glad you signed up (and that I may have helped that decision). I’ve added you as a buddy. However I am even more excited that you’re going to be doing MoA! I just hope you get it published, I can’t wait to read it 🙂
Good luck Walt, i think that using Memoirs of an Assassin is a great idea. I think you will do very well and i can’t wait to read it as a novel.
