NaNoWriMo Is Nigh!! Yes, ladies, gentlemen and aliens, November is coming and along with it, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). NaNoWriMo Is Nigh!! S. The goal? Write a 50,000 word novel in the entire month of November, Impossible, you say?

I wanted to offer a note of encouragement to all those embarking on the 30-day uphill journey known as National Novel Writers Month, or NaNoWriMo. For those who aren't aware, NaNoWriMo comes along every November as a challenge to all writers, 

In its 15th year, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) expects 500,000 writers to join the largest writing event on the planet. The challenge? To write 50,000 words of a novel in the 30 days of November. Half a million people on all seven

NaNoWriMo is shorthand for National Novel Writing Month and it is exactly what it seems. Your goal, should you choose to accept it, is to begin a novel on November 1 and finish it by November 30 at midnight. Yes, really. And, it's surprisingly possible.

Tomorrow marks the start of the 15th annual National Novel Writing month — or, as it's best known, NaNoWriMo. I first covered the event back in 2001 (holy moly), when I decided to participate. The goal: Write a 50,000-word novel in just 30 days
