Today is the first day of December. By corollary, that also means that November is over. That’s significant, because two of my friends made the end-of-November deadline for ‘National Novel Writing Month’ (also known as Na-No-Wri-Mo. It is supposed to be pronounced Nah-Know-Rye-Moe, but I always pronounced it Nah-Know-Ree-Moe). Whichever way you pronounce it, it’s the idea that during the month of November, you have to write a novel of at least 50,000 words. It can be in any style, but it has to be written in the month of November, and finished by the end of the month. Despite the ‘National’ monicker, it takes place all over the world, including Canada. Here in Vancouver, Matt and Oana both finished their novels. Congratulations are definitely in order.
I always like hanging out with smart, creative people.
So, a tip of my hat to both of them, along with a little Photoshop-style daydream:
