It's NaNoWriMo Time!


Here we go again, friends! November is creeping up on us like a vampire on a moonlit night and we're about to spill blood on to the page as we frantically pound the keyboard with the 50,000 word goal pushing us hard.

For those of you who don't know what NaNoWriMo is, let me explain...it's CRAZY, that's what it is! NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Each November, people around the globe gather at the NaNoWriMo website and sign up for the wildest, wackiest month of frenzied writing ever. You have 30 days to write a 50,000 word novel.

You're not competing against anyone but yourself and the calendar. 50,000 words sound overwhelming? It's not so difficult. If you type 1667 words a day for 30 days, you'll reach your goal and you'll be the proud owner of novel. Well, a rough (sometimes very rough) first draft of a novel. The months following NaNoWriMo are for editing, revising and polishing that novel until it's ready to send off to an agent or publisher.

So, that's what I'm doing this November...what are you doing? Ever thought of writing a novel? Pop over to the NaNoWriMo website and sign up  (it's free) and we'll do it together!
