Have you heard of NaNoWriMo???? No? neither had I until about 10 months ago when I stumbled across it when looking at information about writing a novel. I was looking for inspiration and found this site: http://nanowrimo.org/dashboard . Here was an organization dedicated to helping individuals write a novel or novels.
Their main focus to an annual event called the National Novel Writing Month, which occurs each November and has as its goal the writing of a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month. How cool!
Anyway I am going to participate in the event this year and I urge anyone else who ever thought about writing a novel to check it out as well.
