Well, NaNoWriMo is almost here!

Gee, why do I feel like Linus trumpeting about the Great Pumpkin?
Anyway, the votes are in and I’ll go ahead and write about magic as a blood-borne pathogen.  I think I even a have a plot idea or two that I can hammer into shape.  Eh, we’ll see, I guess.  To be honest, I’d be happy to get a couple of workable short stories out of this, but I’ll give it my best go anyhow.

Well, I’m off to set up my OpenOffice file and do some last minute research.  Good luck everyone!

One Last Chance

You’ve got one last chance to vote on this year’s NaNoWriMo project.

A friend told me once, when I started with the surveys on the blog here, that I didn’t need to do market research on my readers.  Well, that’s true enough.  I can write whatever I want and not worry about anyone else’s opinion, but I like to encourage reader participation.
Tomorrow, I will start this year’s attempt at writing a 50,000 word, or better, novel in the space of a month.  Before then, I’ll change the survey to something else, though I’m not sure what.  Either way, you’ll only have until later this evening, sometime, to cast your vote.  If you’d like an explanation of the shortened ideas in the survey, check out the original post where I introduced the survey.
So, vote!  Vote!  Vote!
And, why not try NaNoWriMo yourself?
