Have you ever wanted to write a novel? If so, NaNoWriMo is your chance! What the heck is NaNoWriMo? It's not a what; it's a when. It stands for National Novel Writing Month. Every November, thousands of writers attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. Some succeed, some don't. A few years ago I gave it a try. I was one of the people who didn't succeed. But even though I didn't make it to 50,000 words, I was glad I did it. I wrote more than I would have otherwise, and the process made me a better writer.
The official website for NaNoWriMo has some great resources for participants. You can track your progress, receive inspiration from other writers, and get great writing tips. Even if you're not planning on doing it this year, it's a good resource if you're interested in writing. If you're looking for more writing resources, check out our Creative Writing subject guide.
You've got a few weeks to start thinking of ideas so you can get a strong start on November 1. Happy writing!
