NOVEL WRITING MONTH

Want to do something that most people on the planet only dream of? Want to participate in the challenge of a lifetime? Mr. Anson's honors English classes are going to undertake writing an entire novel during the month of November. Crazy, huh? Absolutely.
Any other students, regardless of grade, English teacher, genre preference, or shoe size, who also thinks she is up to the life-changing experience of writing a novel in 30 days, is welcome to join. Please see Mr. Anson for details about the NaNoWriMo young writers program. You'll need to sign up before the end of the month, so hurry.
And remember that the most rewarding things in life are usually the more difficult things, the things that initially scare us to death.
