PicoWriMo: join me!

I am going to be doing picowrimo again this November. It was set up, to quote their profile, "for people who wanted to participate in some of the madness and achievement of NaNoWriMo, but wanted a more realistic target - say 500 or 5000 words". You can write anything: short stories, part of a novel, essays, whatever you like. There are daily posts for people to comment with their progress and an excerpt if they like, and the other writers are very supportive.

I should really write the final instalment in my Blake's 7 Lynx series but I'm not sure that I'm in the mood for space battles. So if anyone has suggestions for something lighter and fun, I'm open to them. :-) The first time I took part, I wrote a B7/Narnia crossover due to a suggestion. :-)

I wish I was better at writing: more prolific and didn't need a challenge to get me going. After all, being unemployed should give me the opportunity to write a novel but the thought of sorting out all my various and chaotic ideas into something that may work just brings on a feeling of utter inadequacy. Let's face it, I'm a dabbler. :-(
