NaNoWriMo

In Saturday, 30 October’s class (in Twinity, 6 p.m. eastern in the Writers Retreat), we are going to discuss NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month.

To quote the site:

“National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30.”

So you have between now and 1 November to find a topic and get yourself in gear so that you may start writing on the first of November. We’ve been discussing getting unbogged-down, and how to keep writing despite your own doubts, floundering in research, etc. So let’s see if we can put that into practice!

How many are willing to give NaNoWriMo a try?

The week after, Saturday, 6 November, we will not be having class as I will be away on an author-related event. I’d love you to post your writing endeavors here if you feel inclined.

And – keep writing!
