Blogging November

This month is NaNoWriMo month.

NaNoWriMo celebrates National Novel Writing Month, and encourages people to write 50,000 words (about 175 pages) during the month of November. It's a really cool concept that encourages people to do one of the hardest things in terms of becoming a writer --- JUST WRITE. It doesn't matter if it's good or bad writing, it's that you're writing that's important.

Although I would love to write 50,000 words during the month of November, I think my thesis adviser would be horrified that I were doing that in addition to my thesis. So, I will partake in a similar endeavor.

NaBloPoMo celebrates National Blog Posting Month. It challenges bloggers to post every day for a month. Of course, it's already the 2nd of November, but I didn't hear about this til today, so I think I'm off the hook for yesterday.

How did I hear about this? Several of the fabulous bloggers I read are also attempting this challenge! See: her and her.

So I will try to blog every day for the rest of the month. Any ideas or things you want to hear about from me?

You could discuss the perils of being part of the only family in the nation to have a pet running for office, albeit with a long-shot write in campaign.

Or, about how fabulous your husband is. :)
