Many writers all around the world are participating in a yearly “competition” to write a novel in 30 days. It’s called NaNoWriMo which stands for National Novel Writing Month. In 30 days the goal is to write 50,000 words without self editing and procrastination and worrying about the story. The point is to get writers out of their own way and basically just write. Obviously at the end of the month the novels won’t be perfect and probably far from complete, however most people that want to write a novel have one big problem – procrastination. NaNoWriMo provides a reason and support to help you get past that.
You can visit their website to see the current counts and we are going to invite our authors to come and comment on this post with their current progress! If you would like, give them some encouragement in there writing journey. For some it may be their first attempt at writing a book, for others they do it every year as a challenge to get more written.
Here is a link to some posts with tips and another link to “flashcasts” which are short podcasts to with authors talking about how to get the most out of NaNoWriMo!
