The Null Device

For those of you about to take part in National Novel Writing Month, you may care to first read this interview with the organiser, Chris Baty:
That's the sorry hidden truth of NaNoWriMo. People get really excited and turn out these works of fiction that are really amazing given the time constraints but are not publishable. I'll put a page on the website this year saying, "So you're a novelist now what?" I'd like to have counsellors on board afterwards because people inevitably suffer a form of post-partum depression.

Mind you, it's not all bad:

Babes love novelists. Sex appeal like you wouldn't believe. To be able to walk into a room and say "I am a novelist" parts the social Red Sea. It's a very sexy thing to be. December 1 you wake up and it's a whole different dating landscape.
