November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and your opportunity to get that novel started.
Started way back in 1999 in San Francisco with 21 people, NaNoWriMo challenges writers and would- be writers to write 50,000 words in one month…that’s 1666 words a day.
It is doable, trust me. So get your pen and paper, laptop, desktop or whatever you use to write out and get writing. For more information, go to: nanowrimo.org Also see: nanintoo.org for information on where local NaNoWriMo groups meet.
November 1, 2017 Author’s Day
To inspire you, you’ll want to know that today is also Author’s Day. It began in 1928 at the Illinois Women’s Club and has been going ever since.
To celebrate the day, pick up a book (an old favourite or a new one) and start reading.
