It might sound like some secret code that you have yet to be filled in on in the world of blogs, but it's not. It stands for National Novel Writing Month and it's a yearly even that has grown exponentially since it's roots in 1999. The goal for its participants is to write a 50,000 word novel (more like a novella) for the month of the November.

It's going to be a challenge; not to do, but to schedule because I have so much going on but it's something that I want to do. I wonder what it will feel like to complete a goal of this magnitude? Will I discover something about myself that I never knew?

I won't be doing this alone, however. I have a few friends who are interested in the challenge much like I am. I've added two as my buddies (but hope to add more). Also joining me, will be my nine year old son.

NaNo has a youth division that he'll be joining. We can set his goal for any number of words. …
