National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is coming up this November. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days, and to end up with the first draft of a new novel.
The idea of NaNoWriMo is to write as fast as you can. It’s quantity over quality. Kill that debilitating urge for perfectionism. You can edit in December.
So who’s signing up? I just might. I happen to have a story idea about a little dog who falls into the company of fractious, but lovable, progressive activists. (Of course!)
Meanwhile, I’m looking at various writers’ applications. Many of them include motivational tools that help authors set, and achieve, timely writing goals. They are the perfect tools for a mad-dash book draft.
