National Novel Writing Month

Whew! I finally took a break from my Nanowrimo project and realized I hadn't updated the blog this week! But that's what happens when you start writing a 50,000 word project in November. You lose track of your friends, your family, your mind!

For those of you that don't know, National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) is every November. The goal is to write around 1667 words every day. If you stick to this, by the time Nov. 30 rolls around you should have a 50,000 word novel. This project has gotten more and more popular in the last few years and I think it's something everyone should try at least once.

What do you get out of it?

The pleasure of leaving all editing constraints behind! That's the beauty of Nanowrimo--you just write for the sake of writing and don't worry about commas or spellings. That will come later. For now, the joy is just in telling the story at a break neck pace.
