I'm going to join NANO this year and totally rebel it up. Several from Suite101 are going to attempt 50,000 words in non-fiction articles! Woot! Go us!

Who wants to join in the fun? 50,000 words of blog posts? Web pages? Articles? you know you want to.... ;-) Be a rebel that is.

I'm in! I figure this will be a great lesson in time management and goal-setting. Plus it should turn out to be pretty lucrative! Lovely idea.

This would be fun! That is a LOT of writing. It really would be a lesson in time management, what with kids and all. I want to try! I do have a blog, so, maybe I'd do non-fiction with you all or maybe I'd do fiction.

Oh I am SO DOWN with this.

Actually I woke up this morning with an entire book in my head, so I am actually going to write my first nonfiction book in November as well as keeping up with my daily writing commitments (Suite, my sites and DS (because I can't afford not to this month!).

I think I'm going to video blog the challenge, too. After a day of writing, I really need to TALK.

OK, I'll do it! I did have other NaNo plans, but this is more virtuous and holy. Well.... lucrative. I hope.

Most of mine will be Suite articles, plus some queries, my blog and Untrained Housewife articles. Hopefully a few print articles in there as well - could use some Christmas cash! We're allowed to start planning before November, so I'm going to spend the next five days writing down all the article titles and ideas I can think of.

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

Don't forget the brilliant Editorial Calender that your stunning and amazing UTH leader put together for you! ;-) That should give you TONS of ideas. Hahahaha
