NaNoWriMo is a month of 'literary abandon' when many thousands of people try to write a novel - 50,000 words - between November 1st and November 30th. Sound impossible? It's not - though it is hard. If you're still trying to get that amazing idea down and turn it into something more than just thoughts, NaNoWriMo could be the collective kick up the keyboard you need.
The good folk over at Writers' & Artists' are following along this year, profiling five writers and encouraging you to follow, support, and take part. A full guide to their coverage is here - and I wrote a piece for them about my own experiences with NaNoWriMo in a blog post here. Have a look, be inspired, and get writing.
ALSO - there's still time to take part in the 1031 Story Challenge I'm hosting. Can you write a short story in time for Halloween? There are already some fantastic short stories for you to read - just click the link above or go to this page to dive in. For more information on the Challenge, read the post below (also found by clicking here).
Phew, that was a lot of clicking.
