Q:All of my friends are trying to get me to participate in NaNoWriMo. Have you heard of it? Apparently November is National Novel Writing Month, and there’s a service that allows you to publicly pledge a high page number, logs your word count every day, and sends you inspirational writing tips. Like many people, I do feel I have a novel in me. Is now as good a time as any to try to write it? Something about the idea of writing with the help of a social media Web site is off-putting. Maybe I’m just jealous that so many of us feel we have novels in us. Do we?
A: No. No, we don’t. Resist!
Instead of NaNoWriMo try NaNoTweeMo instead. Details here.
