I should have mentioned this at the beginning of November for anyone who may have wanted to participate, but didn't think of posting it on my blog as I use it for my crafts, mostly.
NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month. In one month (November) you write a 50,000 word novel.
The word count validator showed today 50164 words.
If you still would like to write a 50,000 word novel, or just write until next November, go to the website for helpful tips and information. http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/dashboard
