I’ve decided that the first in the steampunk short story from the compilation steampunk book will be a NaNoWriMo submission. I haven’t even plotted the one I’ll be submitting, and of course I will wait until November 1st to start writing, but the challenge is so exciting that I wanted to share. If you have a young’n who likes to write, there’s a children’s challenge as well. It’s called NaNoWriMo’s Young Writer Program. I’m super exceited about the kidlettes getting on writing, being encouraged to try this, and then sharing and loving what they can do. If we all had this kind of encouragement, the world might be able to communicate better.
