The month of November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The challenge put forth by the office of letters and light, the creators of NaNoWriMo, is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. This sounds crazy because writing a novel in a month is crazy. I am now 4 days into it and I am keeping on par so far. 50,000 words in 30 days boils down to writing 1,667 words per day. To give you a brief introduction, here is a song about my favorite part of November.
I have been doing the NaNoWriMo challenge five years in a row now. This has been one of the hardest and most rewarding things I have ever done. I owe a lot to NaNoWriMo because it is what gave me the courage to start writing novels. If this at all interests you, there is still time to join the fun at NaNoWriMo. Even if you can't do 50,000 words, writing anything is an accomplishment be that 30,000 or 10,000. If you have ever considered writing a story, make writing a priority this month. It is well worth the effort and in the end you will have a document that you can be proud of.
How many of you are doing NaNoWriMo this year?
