So a few weeks ago I wrote about the National Novel Writing Month challenge. It begins on November 1. Challenge is to get aspiring novelists to devote a month to completing a 50,000 word first draft of a novel. Not an easy thing, but definitely a kick-in-the-butt challenge for those who say they want to write, but haven't quite found their groove yet.
One of my favorite literary blogs is Paperback Writer. A couple days ago PB Writer wrote an entry called Construction, which was aimed at helping those the challenge begin creating their characters. Lots of good references and exercises there.
Something cool to look at for all you writer types out there who might be a little "stuck" today.
