I was too late last year, but this year, I’m going to do NaNoWriMo.
National Novel Writing Month is November. I have thirty days to write a novel. My first NaNoWriMo novel will be called “On Ice,” and is a sci-fi romance about a researcher stranded on a very cold planet and the computer expert who loves her from a long distance. I don’t have an ending clearly in mind, because I’m a Pantser, but I intend to get there in thirty days!
You can participate in NaNoWriMo. Head over to http://www.nanowrimo.org and create an account. You don’t have to have written a novel before, and you don’t need any credentials except an e-mail address and password. Writing is so much fun, and if you enjoy a challenge, I urge you to join NaNoWriMo right now.
