A Million Monkeys: or Strategies To Get Your Book Written During National Novel Writing Month
Do you hear that? That's the sound of a million wanna-be authors panicking!
That's right, November 1st is the start of National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo to those in the know. Thousands of people (official count as of this posting is nearly 150,000) will crack their knuckles and sit down in-front of their blank pages (paper or digital) and attempt to write a novel (50,000 words) in thirty days. Thirty days!?!?
That's impossible, I hear you cry! But it's not, you can start and finish a novel in thirty days if you can manage to average about 1,667 new words each day. See, it's easy right?
