November is National Novel Writing Month

November is National NovelWriting Month (Nanowrimo).   It is an annual internet-based project.  It challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel in the month of November.  The focus is about quantity not quality and the idea is just to get the words on the page and not worry about anything else, such as editing.   I participated two years ago and found it a liberating experience.  The Gift was the result - I can’t believe I’m still working on it!  I’m tempted to have another go this year as I have an idea bubbling away, but tempting though it is I’m going to crack on and with The Gift.  

Good luck to those of you who are participating in Nanowrimo this year.


  1. I can't even seem to get my homework done much less write 50,000 words this month!!

  2. Ah well you've got a week left to do that homework in!
