I discovered this site 20 days too late!

My ticket– er, appearance on the program– to the CCCCs in 2005 is participation on the Creative Writing Special Interest Group (SIG) where I’m going to talk about blogging as a tool for creative writing. This isn’t as odd as it might seem because, before I became a “comp rhet guy,” I was a “fiction writer guy.” I have an MFA in creative writing, I’ve published a few stories in very little magazines and such, and I still write some “creative” things once in a while.

Anyway, I decided to do a little light Google research this morning, and one of the sites I came across was The National Novel Writing Month web site. What is “National Novel Writing Month,” you ask?

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

Why November is considered a good month for NNWM is beyond me.

Anyway, Blogger has already published articles about blogging and novel writing here and here, and a simple search of “creative writing blog” yielded plenty of results. I’ll have something to talk about in March, probably….
