NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It runs for the whole month of November. Now that October is here, take time to prepare for it. Write an outline, finish research, complete your character development. Organize your calendar. Be ready to pound out 20-50,000 words in the month. Just remember this is the first draft and don’t worry about editing. That is what the rest of the winter is for.
The website will help you track your progress, set milestones, connect with other writers, and participate in events that will help motivate you.
