I'm considering it.

I am (Unlike last year) not going to be overweight with work.
And ive got a bit more passion for the art.

I may put my awful skills to use this November.

It's not so much a competition as an annual writing event. Nobody actually competes. There are no prizes. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in the 30 days of November. Do that, and you "win". It's a very social, chaotic and exciting approach to writing that isn't really replicated anywhere else.

Do you just write 50,000 words and submit it all at once or do you write it over time on the website?

EDIT: Nevermind I checked the site out
I'll give it a shot. No reason not to, I guess.

EDIT2: Im actually really excited now. I have my account set up and everything.

Hmm yeah I've heard a lot of people talking bout this and am interested this year.

I wrote a narrative as an English assignment and my professor really liked it so I think I'm going to expand on it and finish it out for this event just to see what other ppl think.

lookin forward to see what you guys come up with ;D

At least now this will give me an excuse to expand upon it.

I'm thinking about doing this but I'm afraid someone will steal my story idea from me.
