Write a novel in a month?

Something of a small craze is starting to take hold at Supernight, with two of our number having decided that this November they're going to write a novel. In one month. It's a hard task, but someone's got to do it.

Anyway, it all came about as a result of being sent this website:

There's something infectious about the idea that it really is quantity, not quality that counts.

If they let me, I'll post up some excerpts as they get into the swing of it. AND, if anyone wants to join us, then please please do! Send me excerpts of yours and I'll post those up too. If enough people do it we can all get together for a celebration and can laugh at the terrible novels we've written in one month together!

love Becky

p.s. I really should mention that all plans are in place for a fabulous gig on Saturday at the Maze, and you know it's all for charity so come on down and eat cake, wear badges, see projections, listen to bands, enter the raffle, dance, drink and make merry!
