My annual plug for NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo is just four days away! If you have a story in you that’s just dying to come out, I heartily recommend it!

November is National Novel Writing Month. If you’ve ever said “Someday I’m Going to Write a Book about…..” NOW is your chance to sign up for NaNoWriMo, go crazy and get that thing written, even if poorly. (Get those words out of paper. You can polish it later.) “This is seat-of-the-pants writing,” says founder Chris Baty.

    People who sign up for this are insane (in a good way). I realize you’re not writing publish-worthy quality in a month, but to write even the first draft in a month is a huge accomplishment. It has taken my coauthor and I 2 years to get our book even close to publication so I have to admire those able to do it in 1/48th that time.

      Thanks for that perspective, Elizabeth! You are right, it’s not about producing a publishing-quality work. It’s about scaling the invisible hurdles that keep us from starting. And sometimes in this ‘seat-of-the-pant’ writing a writer discovers what s/he is really thinking on a subject!
