Maybe this year I'll get a novel out—wouldn't that be novel?

Hey, there! Thanks for your interest in my 8-Week Online Novel-Writing Course. It's designed to coincide with November's National Novel-Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but includes both pre-drafting and revision instruction as well.

I've been a teacher of creative writing at a major university for more than 8 years, and all through that time I've done independent novel-writing coaching as well as written these dang things myself! When you finish my course, you will have a revised draft of a novel ready to post, sell, share, or revise further. (I offer one final read with comments after your revision!) The only way to be a novelist is to WRITE THAT NOVEL! I will be your cheerleader, drill sergeant, and best friend during this whole process.

And I think I'm going to try it.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
