I’ve got a couple of friends who have written books, but they are not yet published works. In fact they are still pretty much rough drafts. They were both participants in NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month, a very cool project started a few years ago that has inspired many a fledgling writer to hammer out a whole, if hurried, novel in the space of just one month. The month of November to be exact. Many start out on Nov.1 with high hopes and the attrition level is high as the relentless writing pace takes its toll, but many do succeed in cranking out a 200+ page yarn before the Nov. 30 deadline. Two of my friends have done just that and I think it would be great to make their manuscripts downloadable from this site. As the title of this post suggests, I think it is a longshot, but if they do let me post their diamonds-in-the-rough, please be kind in your critiques of their work. Hey it takes a lot of moxie to write a novel in 30 days!
