November is National Novel Writing Month — Are you in?

November is a crazy month for many writers. We sit down at our computers, our word processors, or whip out pen and paper and write our hearts out.

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is where we gather for support, commiseration, encouragement and to get our butts kicked when we need it.  The object of NaNoWriMo is to write a 50,000 word novel in a month.  Some write more, some write less. Some even go on to get their novels published from the event.  But the point is to just sit down and DO IT!

I know many of you out there probably have a story or three whispering sweet nothings in your ear, begging to be put into a readable format.  If you’ve ever been tempted to indulge, or have thought to yourself: “I can write better than that!” then put your thoughts into action and join us in the insanity!

The website offers local (and long-distance if you are so inclined) support, friends, encouragement and local gatherings (write-ins) where people gather together to write.  I have to say, it’s lots of fun and the challenge is a kick in the butt if you need one to get started.

You can add writing buddies on the site. If someone you know is doing NaNoWriMo, just search for their name (or nickname) in the search bar, and ‘add as buddy’ on their profile. I’m there as cassidymckay. My project for NaNo this year is an erotic romance novel (such a surprise, isn’t it?).

I hope you’ll join me in the fun and write a novel in a month, too.  November has already started. Have you?
