YES! Here we are at another National Novel Writing Month, (November of each year). This year, 125,000 writers and dreamers will participate with the goal of writing a 50,000 word novel during November.
I participated in 2007 and successfully completed over 50,000 words on my novel entitled Twice Betrayed. I still haven't published it but am editing a major change in the novel's theme and story line.
Meanwhile, I have finally decided upon a main character and plotline for this year's NaNoWriMo; we named our new puppy after the character.
There is a wonderful support structure for aspiring writers at NaNoWriMo, with "Write-In" gatherings around the country. There are at least three active Montana NaNo groups that I know of, in Bozeman, Billings and Missoula.

Billings NaNo writers will meet at the Leaf Coffee Shop at Eighth and Grand between 4 pm and 7 pm, Saturday, November 1st.
Missoula NaNo writers meet at Liquid Planet (a coffee house) on North Higgins between 2 pm and 4 pm on Sunday, November 2. (Conference room in back on the left)
Bozeman NaNo's haven't yet decided on a meeting place, but I will update this post once we get going in November.
There will be additional gatherings during the month. Isn't it funny how "struggling writers" are identified with COFFEE?
I have my "Winners" certificate from 2007 framed here in my home office, and I even bought the tee-shirt! This is a great time to get into the habit of writing every day, and NaNoWriMo participants support each other!
