NaNoWriMo…it’s coming…

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is just under a month away. For those of you who have never heard of it, well…NaNoWriMo is pretty awesome. Obviously more info is available on their website (the link is in the first sentence) but the jist is this: Think of a story for a novel and write the entire thing during the month of November.

I did last year and I “won”, meaning I finished my novel. There’s no prizes per se except for the satisfaction that you wrote a novel (50,000 words) in a month. My approach was just to write about two people and their tumultuous relationship. I had no outline, nor did I have any idea what would happen until I sat down to write everyday. This may not be the best approach but it gave me a first draft that I could edit the hell out of and I’ve been trying to ever since December 1st, 2010 🙂 .
I suggest checking it out and doing it up…you never know what will happen!
