Not my cup of … um … prose, but might be of interest to others

I successfully defeated (they call it won but I know what it really was) the 2006 National Novel Writing Month challenge of completing a novel of 50,000+ words in 30 days. It’s not what you would call a GOOD novel and I’m not sure it’ll ever be good enough to be read by my best friend, much less an editor. But I finished it and in November, 2007 I intend to top my word count AND produce something worth reading.

In my misspent youth I wanted to be a screenwriter. I dated one for a while and realized this wasn’t the kind of writing I wanted to do. (Writing for stand-up is one thing; writing for the screen … nah, not my style. It’s a talent I lack and don’t feel as embarrassed about it as I did when I first woke up to the fact.) But I know a lot of people who really want to do it and some of them seem to have the talent. Those people might be interested in Script Frenzy, brought to you by the same wonderful people who brought us Nanowrimo

So speaking from my heart and remembering how much damn FUN Nanowrimo was, I encourage all who read this who think they have a script or screenplay in them to go to the Script Frenzy website, sign up, and spend June having as much intense fun as I had last November.

Script Frenzy only goes for 20,000 words. Come on, you folks. you KNOW you can do it!
