TODAY'S NEWS: Eldritch's Writing Sweater was hand-knitted by Reader Elizabeth! Lots of webcomics get Fan Art, but how many of them inspire knitting projects?
A friend of mine wrote an excellent autobiographical account of being legally married during the time from when Oregon licensed same-sex marriages until those licenses were voided. While agents and publishers said her story was well-written and compelling, they didn't think it would sell because it wasn't tragic enough. (I don't know how many times, if any, she used the word "throbbing.")
Those who are writing novels for NaNoWriMo should reach about 13,336 words today, if they're keeping an even pace of 1,667 daily words. That may sound like a little or a lot to you. It's a fairly leisurely pace if all one has on the schedule for the day is 1) Writing and 2) Perhaps a nap after lunch. People who also have jobs, commutes, children, spouses, pets, school, televisions, exercise routines, Internets, hobbies, social lives, webcomics and/or time-consuming grooming habits may find it challenging to grab one or two hours each and every day in November to work on their novel. Yet there's a lot of fun in rising to that challenge. If you've read about NaNoWriMo and thought that you might do it next year, there's still time to do it this year!
