I've been encouraging others, including my creative writing students, to sign up and get to work on this most excellent "butt in seat" exercise. Of course this means that I will have to put up or shut up, right? I'm going to do it -- and I'm going to start a whole new project. And this time I'm going to try and be a bit more organized than I was 5 or so years ago when I did NaNo the first time. Stay tuned. Sign up yourself. Friend me on the site - I'm christinearvidson. See you there!
