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.
I think that this year I will give it a stab, but only unofficially. I’m not quite ready for the level of intensity that writing a novel in public view would involve. But you may find it your cup of tea.
