National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is this month—November.
This annual event encourages authors and would-be authors to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in one month, during the month of November.
Thus far, 90+ published novels began as NaNoWriMo projects. NaNoWriMo writers produced three billion words last year.
Are you looking for some inspiration to finish or write a novel that has been hanging around the corners of your mind? Then I encourage you to seize this month to write your novel. Just start writing. Write instead of watching television this month. Write in your spare time. If you get stuck and need some inspiration, simply visit the NaNoWriMo website to read a daily writing tip.
Are you a publisher looking for a great novel manuscript to publish? Consider hosting a NaNoWriMo competition. Encourage writers who have put a novel to ink this month to submit their novel for consideration for publication with your publishing company. You can help add to the NaNoWriMo statistics as well as your company’s book offerings. Published novels that began as NaNoWriMo projects are sure to draw plenty of media coverage, helping you get a boost on promoting the book you choose.
Don’t wait. November starts today. Start writing or advertising your NaNoWriMo competition. And, keep me informed. I would love to hear about your NaNoWriMo project.
