November is National Novel Writing Month

Writers rejoice!  NaNoWriMo.org is the site for you.  On November 1 participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000 word novel, by 11:59 pm on November 30th.  It is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.  You will get pep talks, inspirational letters, written by well-known authors.  This year’s Pep Talkers are Jim Butcher, Kami Garcia, Tamora Pierce, Veronica Roth, Brandon Sanderson and Chuck Wendig.  There are forums to help you along the way, web badges, special offers from sponsors and in January/February they will take writers to the next level: revision and the publishing process.  To sign up go to NaNoWriMo.org and free your inner story!
