It's that time of year again!

I spoke about it at Homewood High School earlier this week, I'm speaking about it at the Southern Magic meeting tomorrow, and now I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I won National Novel Writing Month in 2008 and I am going to win it again this year with my fabulous new adult romantic comedy Star Crossed.

We here at Jennifer Echols LLC find that shame is a powerful motivator. That's why I will be posting every day of November, excluding weekends, with my word count and progress. I hope you will join me! To post to this blog, you need to have a LiveJournal account, but it takes only a minute to set up and costs nothing. Some time between now and Nov 1, leave a comment with the following info:

1. Who you are

2. What kind of novel you're writing

3. How many words you're going to write on November 1 (if you're trying for a daily quota, you need 50,000 / 30 = 1667 every day)

4. Encouraging thoughts for someone else who has posted

Then, each day of November, come back and tell us how you did. Here's the catch: there is NO WHINING and there are NO EXCUSES at Jennifer Echols LLC. You did or you didn't.

Ready?

I'm writing 1667 words on November 1.

And I know all of you can too.
