Several of our members are putting up rock-star numbers in the annual writing marathon known as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo to its fans). The goal is to write 50,000 words of fiction before the clock strikes December.
It’s more than a random number and a personal goal. NaNoWriMo is a community event. You can keep a running log of your progress at www.nanowrimo.org, chat with other writers for support, and generally encourage one another to keep the word count coming. Some might view is as a stunt, others as a lark. But for the vast majority, it works because it sets up a challenge and a deadline that, frankly, most of us need to stay on task.
If you’re participating in this year’s NaNo, post your progress here too so we can cheer you on! Just use the comment section below.
