Once again, November is National Novel Writing Month. Is anyone else going to try it? If you do, we should add each other as writing buddies on the website. I hope to see you there.

Every year I want to do this. I've had an idea for a novel, but it's too much like Harry Potter in space (well, the future). I'll sign up...just did. I have the same user name there as I do here (capitalization and everything). I'll kick around some more ideas throughout October and see what I can write in November.

I've decided on a different idea I've also had bumping around in my head for a bit. It's about a confidence man, who's going to pull a long con known as "the wire", as seen in the movie The Sting. But it's in the sci-fi genre so the advanced knowledge is gained by way of a time-dilation bubble.

I only have one novel idea, but I don't know if I'm actually going to attempt to write it. I think I'll be going for the word count, but not necessarily try to tell a coherent story.

Have you thought of doing Script Frenzy in April, too?

Yeah, I've thought about it. Was looking for software to format a screen play. But I think it would be easier to adapt a working story into screen play format, than write one from scratch, for me.

I used to enjoy writing pieces of screenplays, but I'm so out of practice with that format. It might be fun to try again.

I saw those emails creeping up in my inbox, the NaNoWriMo ones, that is.

I simply cannot keep up with the pace involved and I did give it a valiant effort two years ago. In fact, I'm still working on THAT story. Little by little I may get it done by 2020 at my snail's pace.
