A novel must age like fine wine

First there was: National Novel Writing Month
Then there was: Book-in-a-Week
Now there’s: The First Annual Novel-in-a-Weekend

The creator refers to it as “pulling a Moorcock.” I gues Michael Moorcock is known to have written a novel in 3-days. I prefer calling it “pulling a Voltaire” as 3 days is allegedly how much time it took him to write Candide. And I’d much rather think I am emulating Voltaire than Moorcock.

But I have already promised that I would watch the Superbowl this weekend with some friends, so that eliminates most of Sunday, so I am going to have to sit out this year.
