Do you think you've got a novel in you?
Well, there’s no better month than November to get it out.
National Novel Writing Month also known as Nanowrimo begins today!
My Starbucks card is loaded (for endless cups of black coffee) and my laptop is fully charged.
The rules: Write 50,000 words by the end of the November.
The supplies: Perseverance and something to write on.
The prize: A certificate of completion and the satisfaction of knowing you authored a book.
Your novel can be any genre – sci fi, fantasy, horror, romance, mystery or a combination of all of ‘em.
I wrote my first Nanowrimo book in 2004. I didn’t do it for an editor or publication. I wrote it for me. And I’m just as proud of it as I am my published works.
Will your novel be good? Probably not. The first drafts of bestselling authors suck too. Just write it. You can always fix it in December – or not.
Can you do it? Hell, yes! I’ve read your blogs, and you guys are a fantastic bunch of writers!
So click on over to www.nanowrimo.org and sign up!
Good luck! See you (and your novels!) at the end of the month!
