Inky's Choice: NaNoWriMo
Nisma, the Voice for November, is participating in National Novel Writing Month - and she's not the only one!
Inky loves writing, as well as reading. (We haven't the heart to tell him that no-one wants to publish an adventure book where the treasure is an old, smelly bone.) Which is why inside a dog is full of great resources for writers!
- A new writing forum, to talk about your writery woes.
