Open Source Everything



[NaNoWriMo](, the National Novel Writing Month project inspires people (primarily blogging types) all over the world to get off their lazy butts in November and write write write. The primary force behind writers block is [static inertia](, I.E. "a body at rest tends to stay at rest." NaNoWriMo is designed to break through that block and get you writing, to the tune of 50,000 works over the course of November. The official rules even state that the object isn't to get you to write the Great American Novel - it's to get you writing at all.

Static Inertia is sticky wicket, however, and some people never quite get the ball rolling. Blogs abound with announcements of the author's intention to participate, and maybe even an early snippet, and then go silent on the matter.

As a tribute, parody, or both, []( (shes a broad who's abroad - get it?) is hosting NaDruWriNi - National Drunken Writing Night this Saturday, November 5th.



Ahhh. Nothing is more satisfying that sending an e-mail out to all your pretentious writer friends declaring your heartfelt dedication to NaNoWriMo, and then not completing one teeny tiny single bit of it.

Staying away from NaNoWriMo because you got burned last year? Need a push to get started this year? Fire up the laptops and come participate in an ambitious writing project thats much less, um... ambitious.
