On November 1, 2011, all the novelist hopefuls who have signed up for this awesome adventure will be hitting their laptops with abandon. Many will be returning winners, like myself. I have returned ever year for the past three years and now I'll be at it again. Each year marks a return to a state of frantic creativity. Trying to find that one great idea that is book material. 50,000 words is no easy task if you don't have the right premise. I think I've got one that will fly. I still have to work out some details in my mind. I hate outlines. Wish me luck. Here's one of the goodies I got for "winning" last year.
