Why Not Write A Novel This November?

No sun—no moon! No morn—no noon—
No dawn—no dusk—no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member—
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds!—

From the poem "November" by Thomas Hood
What do we have to lose? Join me by writing a novel of your own during the 30 darkening days of November. National Novel Writing Month has everything we need to keep us inspired, along with pep talks for writers of all ages.

(I'm going to take my own advice, because I'm one of the 2011 Pep Talkers.)
