In addition to the panelists at the Writing Show last night, there was a representative for NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month. I had first heard of this event last year but didn’t participate. It’s held every November, challenging all (non-)writers to write 50,000 words beginning midnight Nov. 1 through 11:59 Nov. 30.
Learn more at the NaNoWriMo website. There appears to be a lot useful stuff there, including pep talks and community support. I intend to sign up and give it a shot. It may be the kick in the tuchas I need.
Will you participate this year? Have you in the past? What was your experience?
