NaNoWriMo + Blogger + LuLu + Blooker = Profitology!
- Write your 1,000-2,000 words a day (to get to novel-length by the end of the month);
- Post your writings to your blog -- or set up a new blog specifically for it. Bloggger is quick and cheap for one-off blogging, plus it'll bring readers to your writings automatically;
- On December 1st, go to LuLu and create a book -- your book -- and publish it. Order a few copies for yourself, and 3 to submit to the Blooker awards;
- Fill out the Blooker entry form, and follow the instructions to be included in the contest.
Pretty simple -- but you've gotta write! Even if you don't win anything, you'll be able to say you've written a novel, published it, and been considered for a literary award. Get to it -- you've lost a week's worth of writing already, but you should be able to catch up. Stop reading my blog, and go type something Blooker-worthy!
