No, I will not be participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November, even though among my stash of unused domain names, I keep up the registration of three that would be the titles of novels I have already outlined at least half the story of (but I only have an ending for one). And yes, two of the titles are almost painfully punny, and I would probably blog any novels I write as I am writing them, but I’m not going to reveal anything to anybody until I’m ready to do it and on November 1st, 2008 I will NOT be ready.

Why isn’t there a National Short Story Writing WEEK? (NaShoStoWriWe)

I am considering some alternatives to NaNoWriMo, including:

Writing a Cook Book for National Cook Book Writing Month: NaCoBoWriMo.

Writing a Pamphlet for National Pamphlet Writing Month: NaPaWriMo (unfortunately you have to be living in Napa, California to fully participate. It’s more of a NapaCaPaWriMo.)

Write an Opera for November Opera Writing Month: NoOpWriMo, not to be confused with the planned post-election No OpEd Writing Month, also NoOpWriMo.

Then, of course there’s November Economic Forecast Writing Month (NoEcFoWriMo), leading directly into December Excuses For Not Giving Presents Writing Month (DeExFoNoGiPreWriMo).

And then there’s Blog Mediation Writing Month (BloMeWriMo), which I suspect will be very popular this year.

Your Turn...
