Yep, it’s coming up to that time of year again: NaNoWriMo.
For the uninitiated among you, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It’s an annual event where writers all over the world attempt to 50k words in 30 days. That equates to about 1667 words per day. The idea is that on the 1st of November, you start writing an entirely new novel, but you can be a rebel by continuing an old project or writing something other than a novel. It’s a great community which is so supportive and the forums are really useful, with people asking questions that I didn’t even realise I needed to ask for my own novel. There’s also the added bonus that you can earn badges along the way – a great motivator for me!
