If you’ve always wanted to write the Great American Novel but never found the motivation, here comes the nudge you’ve been waiting for! November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and from the 1st to the 30th, “WriMos” – those who participate – register on the site, start writing a novel and word count is tracked.
Kind of a crazy name, but it’s a good way to get into the habit of writing. Quality isn’t the priority here. Write it all down now and edit the crap out later. The goal is 50,000 words by the end of the month, and, sadly, you don’t win a prize at the end of it. But you will have written that book you’ve got inside you. Then it’s yours to refine, revise, and retail. Worth a shot if you’re game!
