NANOWRIMO - NAT'L NOVEL WRITING MONTH


I signed up to NANOWRIMO - National Novel Writing Month - for the first time ever.

The idea is, you write 50,000 words in one month.

You don't "win" anything except you get a novel out of it.

It costs nothing to sign up, which always appeals to me.

The "official" month is November but you can choose any month you want and do it on your own. I want to do it with the world so I'm raring to go in 19 days and six hours!!

Check out their website to see what all the fuss is about - or to sign up too!

P.S. Actually, I'm raring to go in 12+ days. Evidently you are allowed to plan and outline and begin doing background work on characters and the book one week before the start date - but you still can't write anything until Nov. 1.
