Join the Challenge to Write a Novel in a Month

by Lindy

I just learned that November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)! It is a challenge for writers around the world to complete a 50,000-word novel by the end of November.

I’ve never participated in this challenge, nor have I ever written a novel. The closest I’ve come to writing one is my 100-page thesis for my master’s degree. That was painful!

WordPress is easing writers into NaNoWriMo with their Post a Day Challenge. They provide daily writing prompts and encouragement to give writers inspiration for their blogs.

“It’s all about quantity, not quality. This approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly. Make no mistake: You will be writing a lot of crap. And that’s a good thing. By forcing yourself to write so intensely, you are giving yourself permission to make mistakes. To forgo the endless tweaking and editing and just create. To build without tearing down.”

–NaNoWriMo

There is a Chick Lit novel inside me waiting to be written. Should I join the challenge? Are you in?
