Yup, it's that time of year again! It's time to sign up for NanoWriMo! For those few who are unfamiliar, this is a contest challenging participants to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. You start from scratch on November 1st, and the deadline to turn it in is November 30th. 30 days, 50K words. It's all about quantity, not quality.

And it's that last line that has me tempted to try this. I type fast, and I know that 1500 words a day is easy output for me. The problem I have with creative writing is that I am *terrible* with plot arcs.. and really... plot development at all. Since I've been more of a GM when RPGing lately (which is to say, still rarely, but more than none), I need to work on this idea. Well, spending a month writing a novel with some sort of plot in it seems like a great idea for me to work on this idea. It doesn't need to be good, just big!

Anyone else thinking of doing this with me?
