A favorite Piker past-time since 2001 and the inspiration behind the founding of the Piker Press, National Novel Writing Month kicks off on November 1, 2004. Anyone who finishes is a winner, and the only prize is the satisfaction of having written a novel, but what a delightful prize it is! It's not too late to try to write a 50,000 word novel by November 30, 2004, especially with mottoes like "Quantity, not quality!" and "No plot? No problem!"
