ALERT: Fiction ahead!

Look for a lot fewer News Day posts in November, as I’m signing on for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! If you haven’t already heard of it, NaNoWriMo is a 16-year-old project that last year enrolled more than 300,000 people on six continents, with each person writing 50,000 words of a novel between November 1 and 11:59 p.m. on November 30. (That’s the NaNoWriMo shield at left.)

Because of NaNoWriMo, and also just because I can, I’m planning on a lot more creative writing during November. I will probably post a lot of short stuff — poetry, mini-essays, reflections, and such — on Fragments, another one of my WordPress blogs, rather than on News Day.

When I write blog posts on News Day, I usually spend a lot of time researching, reading and thinking about them. That’s time I will give to my creative writing during November. I’m excited about doing something different, and have no idea how much I’ll publish on Fragments or whether anyone will read it.

On to the adventure!
