MileHiCon has come and gone; it was a lot of fun. The panels I moderated (“Modified Matter” and “Weird Biology”) were well-attended, standing room only, and even my reading went well (not a huge turnout, but I wasn’t expecting one).
Now we’re heading into Hallowe’en and the beginning of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. The objective is to write at least 50,000 words (which is a short novel by today’s standards) during the month of November. Check out the NaNoWriMo web site, which keeps participants in touch with each other, tracks your progress, and provides general encouragement. If you’re into writing at all, it’s a lot of fun, and you may be surprised at just how much you can write if you try.
I haven’t made a final decision on what I’m going to work on — I have a few ideas and partial outlines to choose from — but I’m definitely participating. If you are too (or if you’re just thinking about it), why not post a comment about what you have in mind?
