Stands for National Novel Writing Month and takes place in November.

I like the idea of encouraging people to write, but a 50,000 word novel in a month I think is enough to put most people off this idea, including me.  So personally I'm going to set my own writing challenge. All my writing currently consists of this blog and songs, so that's what I will be attempting. I'll say I have to write either a song or a blog each day. I'll put a minimum word limit of 500 on blogs because sometimes I do short ones, and no; a picture does not count for 1000 words.

I think I might make a video about this, help get people writing. Thoughts?

Great idea to write and encourage other people to write. But to try and write that many songs seems like it would inevitably mean lower quality. I'd be super impressed with somebody who could come up with a new song every two weeks. If you're feeling super ambitious, maybe write something everyday and have a blog 6 days a week and a song one day a week. That sounds hard enough to me. Good luck and I'll be interested to see what you come up with. Oh, and I have the title for your next song. It's called "Less Than Three." It's just SO internetty. :)

It's hard work, but to be honest, I think it's worth it. Especially if you meet the goal in the end. I'm hoping it'll make me feel like I have more purpose in life. I'm really excited to get started.
