Tomorrow, November 1st, is the kick-off for NaNoWriMo, where dedicated, adventurous writers sign up and pledge to kick-start their writing, or finish a project, by committing to writing every day in November, to complete 50,000 words by the end of the month. It can be a fresh start on a new novel, or a way to test your stamina and ability to commit to time at the keyboard. (And, it needn't be a novel - you can write anything).
Either way, you'll have something to show for it at the end of the month. There's no cost, no commitment, except to yourself, and no shame if you come up short with only 48,329 words on November 30th.
It's easier than you think to get started. Give it a try here: http://www.nanowrimo.org/
