November is a good time for sitting indoors and doing some writing. This is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and some of our intrepid researchers have signed themselves up to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. We salute them and wish them good luck. Those of us who are less intrepid don't need to miss out, as h2g2 is holding its own, almost as famous, event: the h2g2 Nation's Journal Posting Month (NaJoPoMo).
32 researchers signed up for last year's NaJoPoMo challenge to post a journal every day of November. Not everyone finished but those that did produced a veritable flowering of prose, poetry and humour. Can we do as well, or even better, this year? All that is required is that researchers enter a posting in their journal every day. When we asked researchers, in this Ask h2g2 thread, what they thought was the best way to approach this challenge, they took the traditional h2g2 view that there should be no one way. You can either write a separate journal each day, or open one journal thread and post a reply to it each day. All we ask is that you put NaJoPoMo 2013 in the title, and post a link to the thread beneath. What you put in your journal entry is up to you. We look forward to reading them.
The following researchers have thrown their hats into the ring and we'd love you to join us. If your name is not here just add it to the 'Sign me up' thread below.
