NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) starts in just under 5 hours. I don’t know if I’m going to participate this year (and since I haven’t decided at this point, I probably won’t), but it’s a worthy exercise.  The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000 words) novel, starting on November 1 and finishing by midnight November 30.  The goal is quantity, not quality, and it’s harder to do than it sounds.

Check out http://www.nanowrimo.org for more details, and let me know if you’re participating.

For ages, there has been a debate over who actually wrote the plays and poems attributed to William Shakespeare. The Shakespeare Authorship Coalition has a Declaration of Reasonable Doubt About the Identity of William Shakespeare which can be signed online, urging the legitimization of the authorship discussion. Check it out athttp://www.doubtaboutwill.org.
