November is drawing near, and you know what that means: National Novel Writing Month! Yay! (Cue trumpets and drums)
What’s NaNoWriMo you ask? Well, as the name suggests, you write a novel in a month! In November, to be exact. And a 50,000 word novel, to be even more exact. So you write for a month and presto: you have a novel! It’s very exciting stuff.
I did it three years in a row and would be doing it again if I wasn’t a college student (aka November is the worst possible month for that (aka all my papers and finals are due (aka why would you do that to me?))). Anyhow, I highly recommend it. I learned so much about writing and made crazy progress on my book. It doesn’t cost anything and shame is the only consequence of not finishing. So give it a try! What have you got to lose?
