Lit Idol: Could it Be the Answer to Your NaNoWriMo Prayers?
Friday, November 26, 2004
If you've secretly harbored a desire to be a contestant on American Idol or Canadian Idol, but babies cry each time you burst into a lusty rendition of any Celine Dion song, perhaps you might consider an event that seems to be a natural for the bloggers of the world -- Lit Idol. The last Lit Idol winner -- Canadian Paul Cavanagh -- landed a book deal with HarperCollins and has three film studios vying for the rights to his book. So if you're only 10,000 words into your NaNoWriMo novel and you're wondering if you're actually going to get the last 40,000 words written in the next four days, here's an alternative plan: clean up the 10,000 words you've got and submit them to Lit Idol.
