It’s Almost That Time Again
But this year will be different.
I don't know if you've noticed, but this blog has seen more writing activity in the last two months or so than it has seen in all of last year. Once Obama is elected and he puts his "Internet Fairness Doctrine" into place, I won't be allowed to write political commentary anymore for fear of being sent to a "Voluntary Re-education Camp" so if I want to keep the momentum going, I'll have to switch tracks.
Hence the NaNoWriMo Challenge.
And you get to play a part, oh fearless reader. In the comments, leave me a starting sentence, a character name, a setting for a scene, and I will work all of your suggestions into the story.
50,000 words in 30 days. It should be interesting.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the really fun part. Taking a page from one of my favorite writers, Harlan Ellison, I'll be posting the story each day right here so you can follow along.

Sammy looked up from where his head had been resting on the edge of the bar. The storm winds howled outside the dingy walls of the 100 year old bourbon street bar. It didn't look like power would be back on tonight and without power it was either hot beer or hot tequila.
