National Novel Writing Month
is held every November and challenges writers around the world to start and finish a 50,000 word novel in only 30 days.
It can be done, it has been done ... this will be my seventh novel.
But this is the first time I've asked you for help in keeping the program growing. Yes, I work for NaNoWriMo, because I'm passionate about helping people to get that novel out of their head and onto the page.
It's not just about writing, it's about being fearless and rejecting the idea that we have to push our dreams off until we have more time. NaNoWriMo shows ordinary people that they're capable of extraordinary things even within the confines of their regular life.
NaNoWriMo is sponsoring their first ever Write-a-Thon where writers will gather for one evening and type their little fingers off. I'm planning to be there, but I need to make my fundraising goal in order to be guaranteed a seat.
