November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) - "a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing."
The challenge is to write a novel of 50,000 words in a month - starting on November 1. Along the way, you can track your progress, get pep talks and support, talk to other writers online and in person, and experience the satisfaction of achieving your goal and being a "Winner". It may even lead to getting your novel published!
Now that assignments are in, maybe you're ready to write that novel you've thought about writing! Here's how it works.
