NaNoWriMo + Blogger + LuLu + Blooker = Profitology!

No, the title is not free-association, nor random syllables. It's NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, which isn't new news...however, it's the first year that the Blooker Awards are accepting contestants. So, following the Blooker awards rules, you can participate in both, and maybe end up with a prize:

  1. Write your 1,000-2,000 words a day (to get to novel-length by the end of the month);

  2. 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;

  3. 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;

  4. 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!
