I came across [link=http://www.nanowrimo.org/modules/cjaycontent/index.php?id=2]this[/link] intriguing site while surfing the Web. The month of November is National Novel Writing Month. The basic premise is that you start writing a 50,000 word novel on November 1 and have it finished on November 30. It has been going a few years and will be going again this year. It is open to anyone who wants to sign up and give it a go. Signups start October 1. There are also forums on the site where budding authors can ask advice on technique, post plots for adoption, and there are regional social boards. Although it is not a Star Wars site, I figured those into writing Fan Fiction might want to check it out. The title says 'National', but it is open worldwide.
