Today, in tribute to Austrian daredevil (that’s actually printed on his business card) Felix Baumgartner, we want to take a moment to applaud the adventurer in everyone.

Sure, you many not wish to jump from space,  you may just want to pay off your home loan, or make a trip to Hawaii, or publish that manuscript that’s been in the closet for the last decade, but whatever your dream is, go for it.

And for those of you who have always dreamed of writing that novel . . . National Novel Writer’s Month is right around the corner — beginning Nov 1st.

Nanowrimo has, as usual, some great perks  and some wild events for participants. In addition, you’re bound to receive the love and support of your fellow writers. So, visit Nanowrimo today — and, like Felix, start plotting your course for the stars!
