National Novel Writing Month-November
This endurance event of the writing world goes down every November. According to the website it is thirty days and thirty nights of literary abandon.
The Event-Participants begin on November 1st and try to write a 50, 000 word novel before 11:59:59 on November 30th.
The event is more about quantity then quality. The website brings out, ” 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.”
In 2010 there were over 200,000 participants, and we can count on a strong showing this year. Because of this grand number you take comfort in knowing there are others, writing day in and day out to complete their novel.
If you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to write your first novel, November is the time. It will take endurance, fueling, sweat and tears, but the results–A Novel.
Or at least the first draft.
The event is free. You can join now at National Novel Writing Month
