November is National Novel Writing Month

If you can blog, you can write a crappy novel in the next 30 days:
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.

Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.
There is no rule that your novel must include a wise-cracking robot, but I think that can improve any story.

I wish the Brontes had know about the wise-cracking robot option. Their novels would be a lot more accessible.

Hey, I am an instructor at Misque, a juried writer's retreat for authors with complete (or nearly complete!) novels, who want to take the next step and prepare it to be sent to agents and editors. Space is limited to twenty people.

If you completed a novel and think you might be interested, check out misque-writer.com or email me at misque-writer@misque-writer.com
