November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The basic premise is to write a 50,000 word novel over the month of November. Don’t worry about whether it’s a great novel, just get it done (you can always go back and improve it later). I’ve have several bits of novels I’ve wanted to write kicking around for the last several years. I found out about NaNoWriMo mid-November last year, which is a bit late to cram in 50,000 words of writing. This year I’m marking my calendar early. The official site for the event offers a support group and online cheerleading section to help encourage would be writers to make it through to the end. At just over 1500 words a day, the word count should be a piece of cake – I already write several times that on any given day. If anyone wants to join me in Seattle, drop a note in the comments or shoot me an email, it would be more fun to suffer together. Don’t have a solid idea of what to write, don’t worry, the NaNoWriMo motto is: No Plot? No Problem!
