This November, I am taking up the challenge to write the first draft of my first novel. With the help of National Novel Writing Month, I’ll write 50,000 words in 30 days to tell a story that’s been brewing in my mind for almost 5 years. It’s not doing anyone any good in my head so better to have it on digital paper. If you plan to participate, please let me know so that we can encourage each other along the path. I’ll be blogging about my progress as well sharing insights from my writer brain as the process unfolds.
National Novel Writing Month is an online community that provides support and a platform to get and give support as writers barrel through the process of a first draft. Last year over 600,000 writers took part in the event.
