National Novel Writing Month!
November is National Novel Writing Month! NaNoWriMo runs from 12 am November 1st to 11:59 pm November 30th. The Goal: 50,000 words in a month (approximately 175 pages). Its about quantity not quality, you can go back and nitpick at your work later. Just write as much as you can as fast as you can. The genre doesn't matter; what matters is that you are writing!
