Have you ever thought that you had a book in you? How would you feel about writing that book in a month. Yes, the whole book, start to finish. National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, challenges anyone who has a desire to write, to . . . well, write. 50,000 words to be exact. 50,000 words in a month. I’ve participated 5 years in a row and so far, I haven’t finished once. I probably shouldn’t admit that. The way I see it, though, is even if I wrote 20,000 words, that’s 20,000 words more than I would have written without the challenge of at least trying to reach 50,000 words.
It’s that time of year again! No we’re not getting ready to pull out the Thanksgiving decorations. People all over the world are stepping up to the challenge to write a novel during the month of November as part of National Novel Writing Month. Participants start writing their novel from scratch on November 1st and aim to complete a 50,000 novel by midnight on November 30th.
