Only The Good Fridays - Doing it the Write Way

It's Friday once again, which means it is time for ONLY THE GOOD Friday, the "feel good" meme started by my buddy Shelly over at "This Eclectic Life".

Today I want to focus on good, clean, writing fun. Call it a bit of shameless self-promotion along with a bit of inspiration to get you out there to do some WRITING!!!

It seems the whole of the blogosphere (and non-bloggers as well through out the interwebs) are in a writing frenzy this month.

You see, it is
NaNoWriMo, which, for the uninitiated (or perhaps, UN-Insane), stands for National Novel Writing Month. a month in which those of us who happen to be slightly insane, sign up to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. Yours truly, OF COURSE, signed up. You can find me here if you want to be my "buddy" at the NaNo site, by the way. Also, if you'd like to take a sneak peek at what I'm writing, here's a tiny excerpt.

I'm happy to tell you that this year (unlike the great fiasco last year), I'm having much success with inspiration, and as of last night my word counter read 13,280 words.

November also happens to be
NaBloPoMo, which is National Blog Posting Month. Or a month when those of us doubly insane commit to posting a blog entry every single day of the month. I say doubly insane because I'm speaking of myself, of course, but some folks are only doing one or the other. I am un-officially doing both. By this I mean that I officially signed up for NaNoWriMo, but have not officially signed up for NaBloPoMo. Still, I am attempting to write a post daily, and so far, so good.

As if all that wasn't enough, today also happens to be the day for you lovely folks out there to post your second entry to
Karina's Alphabet Soup, the new writing/photography meme I started over at Creative Karina. Mine is up, and I hope you'll join me.

AND even more writing fun, today is also the day for
Pensieve's Poetic License. My post is up here as well.

So, you see, lot's of good clean writing fun on this GOOD FRIDAY.

Go visit
Shelly to join in on the fun!

unofficially doing NaBloPoMo? yeah, guess I'm just as crazy as you as while back I unofficially doing NaBloPoMo for my writing blog, a new post each day even if the writing's bad

good to hear you're doing well with NaNo

will probably do your Alphabet Soup meme, though probably not the Pensieve Poetic as English Sonnets sounds so taxing, going to go and read yours

and best of luck with NaNo and NaBloPoMo, really kind of sick of these anagrams, wish they would just come up with something more simple

13,280 words - WOO!!! Karina, you rock, woman. I'm at a measely 5246, last week being my third week with the flu and I just had to lay down. I'll be playing catch up this weekend.

Yay on the election! Obama! Obama!

am I the only sane blogger -- who didn't sign up for a dearth-defying word sputtering November?

Sorry I'm missing out on the the alphabets and poetics, too.

Maybe I'll snap out of this lethargy soon.

doodeed is my word verification. I don't know if I'm imagining it - but it seems that the spam blocker words are really speaking to me again.
