It’s NaNoWriMo!

Calling all writers! November is here, and that means it’s National Novel Writing Month! Visit the web site to create an account (if you’re over 13), or if you’re under 13, be sure to check out their Young Writers Program, where you can find tips for writing block and a section called “Stump the Librarian” (hmm, I’m not sure how I feel about that!).

Can you write a whole novel in one month? It sure helps if others are trying right along with you!

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.

…Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap. And that’s a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down.

If you’re participation in NaNoWriMo this year, leave a comment and tell us how it’s going!
