NaNoWriMo kicks off soon!
Many of us have read a book and thought "I could do that." NaNoWriMo challenges you to stop talking about it and do it!
Sign up on NaNoWriMo's website and start writing on November 1st. Your goal is to have 175,000 words done by November 30th - rough draft, stream of consiousness text that you can later turn into the novel of every publisher's dreams. NaNoWriMo even gives you tips, tricks and ideas on how to polish your work if you want to submit it for publication. So check out their site today (and remember your favorite librarian when you do the acknowledgements and dedication in what is sure to become the next bestseller)!
