A hasty reminder...

Someone wrote to me to say:

I'm trying out NaNoWriMo this year for the first time. I've never written anything longer than a couple pages, so I'm intimidated and excited at the same time.

I used the handy-dandy Search feature to see if you've ever mentioned it (because it sounds like the type of thing you'd do), and sure enough, it looks like you make a yearly plug of it. Except I didn't see any reminders for this year.

Writing starts on Saturday, so I was wondering if you'd remind people to sign up.

Wish me luck, and good luck to anyone else out there taking part!

I suppose I thought that everyone knew about it now. A silly thing to assume, now I think about it.

But for those who don't... and should: (And my third week pep talk from last year. If you're going to write a novel, save it until Week Three. You may need it.) (I did when I wrote the Graveyard Book.)
