National Novel Writing Month

Yesterday kicked off the 10th Annual National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo, as it is popularly known), and while I don't know how many writers and would-be writers are participating, Director Chris Baty did announce that the website weathered its highest traffic day in the history of NaNoWriMo.

For those unfamiliar with the concept behind NaNoWriMo, here's the explanation from the website:

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

The goal is quantity, not quality, also known as "No Plot! No Problem!", the NaNo Handbook.

My best wishes to all participants.
