NaNoWriMo starts in about 2 and a half hours! I'm staying up to start writing. My story this year is called Chivalry. It's about Sir Gawain's servant, Roland, who is the only logical mind among a world of chivalry and honor. After Sir Gawain accepts the challenge of the Green Knight, and intends to keep his promise, and inevitably go to the chopping block, Roland spends the year before the confrontation trying to convince his master not to go. And afterward, at the time of Gawain's wedding to the Lady Ragnell, Gawain uses the miracle that happens afterward to try to convince Roland of that chivalry is the way to go, that honor is more important than logic.

I can't wait to start writing. Only two hours to go.

Now that I know what NaNoWriMo is... I think it's a great idea. Really good, definitely. But I'm a bit confused, because the website is in different languages and still it is a "national contest", so I don't know if people out of the US are allowed to participate... in which case I'd really love to try this. =)

It used to be just a national thing, but it's now international. They just didn't want to change the name.
