November is National Writing Month

Its National Writing Month--so put yourself to the challenge. Posting to Facebook not challenging enough. How about some of the contests listed below.

1. Always wanted to write a novel. Here's your chance. Sign up and commit!!

2. Not into committing to an entire novel? How about trying your hand at a script. This program officially starts in April but does it hurt to practice?

3. Or in for the short run? How about an article in a magazine. Read what other teens have written and contribute some of your own.

4. When all else fails, write for the fun of it!! Enjoy.
