In case you haven't heard, November is National Novel Writing Month. The goal? Write a 50,000 word novel by midnight November 30th. Everyone at one time in life has dreamed for a brief moment or longer about writing a novel. Hey. I realize we're just about mid-month here. But the site gives tips, tricks and strategies. These guys even offer a course online. Good luck.
Speaking of writing, Doc pointed me to Tony. I really like what he is doing with his blog.
