|National Novel Writing Month |
November 1 - 30, 2016
I've come close to the goal, and maybe this year I will actually make it! It is a great tool to use to help get one off the proverbial "writing couch." This contest isn't judged, it is truly on word count. I do know from personal experience, that having a friend take on the challenge with you helps. It's hard to break down 50,000 words in just 30 days. Some would say it's impossible, but, for me, I've found this really helps speed up my creative juices.
Word count is everything for Nanowrimo. It's not the quality (that comes after your massive writing marathon), it's truly getting words on paper.
So, I'm hoping to see some of you join the craziness, and if you can't this year, put it on your calendars for next year. It truly is an event and how cool is it to tell people you are attempting to write 50,000 words in one month -- unheard of!
Write on, readers!
