Sunday is the Marine Corps Marathon. Thousands of lycra and mylar clad humans will disrupt traffic to trapse around Arlington and over bridges to DC in search of running's holy grail, to survive 26.2 miles of sneaker thumping running.
Tuesday begins the Marathon of the year for Writer-folk, NaNoWriMo, when thousands and thousands of writerly people take to their keyboards throughout November, National Novel Writing Month in a keyboard thumping attempt to crank out 50,000 words (about 200pp) by November 30th.
You know who you are.
Think you haven't trained enough to attempt NaNoWriMo?
How about a HALF-MARATHON? only say, 800 words a day, for 30 days, 100 pages, instead of 200pp. Think of it as 13.1 miles. Nothing to sneeze at mind you?
Yes, join me in a HALF-NaNo this November.
