Why you should be writing a novel this November
Share This Article:
This November I, like thousands of others, will be attempting to write 50,000 words of a novel in just 30 days. Sound crazy? Welcome to NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It was created back in 1999 with the aim to get more people writing. The aim is for aspiring writers and authors from around the world come together to start, finish or revise a novel idea that they have. The rules are simple. Write 50,000 words in 30 days and you win. But why should you do NaNoWriMo? Whether you are an aspiring author or just have an idea in mind, NaNoWriMo is about getting more and more people around the world to start writing. Fiction or non-fiction, it doesn’t matter. The word count goal of 50,000 may seem like a lot - but in all honesty, with a daily word count goal of 1,667, it can be done. Some even finish the 50,000 word goal in the first week.
