Ever been bitten by the writing bug? Do you dream of writing the novel that resonates and expresses the yearning of angst-filled sleepless nights and the breadth and scope of the wretchedness modern life? The ethereal highs, the desolate lows? Well, it's time to marshall your verbal arsenal, quit dreaming, break out Roget's Thesaurus, and, figuratively speaking, put pen to paper. November is novel-writing month and Nanowrimo is the online novel-writing project that can get you going.
The object of Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) is to write a 50,000 word, 175 page novel by the end of November. Nanowrimo has been around since the late 1990s and loads of writers, improbable as it sounds, have completed their novels. Publishing may be another story, but that's not the point. Write like crazy for a month and share your experiences with a group of like-minded dreamers of the impossible dream: that's the point.
There's losts of support and fellowship on the site, and as the Nanowerimo site says,
Win or lose, you rock for trying.
