National Novel Writing Month

November is National Novel Writing Month, “NaNoWriMo” for short.

The idea is to write with abandon throughout the month, completing the first draft of a novel by November 30.

Writers who embark on this annual quest, do so within a community of other sojourners who encourage and support one another to keep moving forward. (In addition to the above link, which is the place to start, follow NaNoWriMo on Twitter or check out hashtag #NaNoWriMo. Plus there’s many more resources and communities that support NaNoWriMo.)

If you’re participating, I wish you well and hope you make your goal.

If you never knew about NaNoWriMo and wish I’d provided more advance warning, that’s exactly what I’m doing—you now have 12 months to think about this and prepare to take part next year.
