I accepted this challenge which starts today and I have to say.. I am freaking out about it a little. I hadn’t planned anything, I hadn’t considered what I was going to write about. Frankly I forgot all about it until this morning! But I wanted to do this and I think that it’s going to be a lot of hard work, but I want to try to get done with as much as I can. Hell, I just need 50,000 words!
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.
As you spend November writing, you can draw comfort from the fact that, all around the world, other National Novel Writing Month participants are going through the same joys and sorrows of producing the Great Frantic Novel. Wrimos meet throughout the month to offer encouragement, commiseration, and—when the thing is done—the kind of raucous celebrations that tend to frighten animals and small children.
