We’re gonna do it.

After much thought, and much pestering of the people around us, we are joining the NaNoWriMo challenge.

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, an event that takes place each November.

The goal is to write the first draft of a novel in 30 days. The novel must be 50,000 words, which is roughly 1,667 words per day.

It’s crazy, really. We think it’s the writing equivalent of the Polar Bear Plunge.

However, good or bad, we’re determined to do this. We think we’re ready: We’ve outlined a plot, sorted out characters, and stocked up on brownies and cake.

So we will be sans blog in November, and won’t be wandering around social media very often.

But we’ll see you in December!

Happily blogging about old movies and using the royal "We".
