As many of you know - today is the day.
November 1st is the day that National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) begins.
Thousands of people around the globe will be busily typing or writing away, filled with optimism for the coming month. Many will fall by the wayside, as the days turn into weeks and the inspiration fizzes out or life intervenes, to mention but a few tales of the unfinished.
The goal is to write 50,000 words - it's a huge task and one that only a few achieve. But even if you don't reach your goal at least you took part and you might have the start of something great.
If you are not doing NaNo this year but it sounds interesting, be sure to check out the site and see what goes on. Maybe you might be inspired to try it out in 2013.
For those who are participants this year - best of luck. If you feel like sharing your tips and or any other feelings about NaNo please do so in the comments. I would love to hear from you.
