Woo-hoo! Tony is going to join in the NaNoWriMo (Inter)National Novel Writing Month project. Richard is thinking about it too. I’ve been trying to leave comments at Manly’s suggesting that he too join in but comments are bloggered so M, if you read this, we all think you should go sign up immediately ok?

Lots more inspiration at found magazine.
