Writing a Novel in November


Whenever you are fed up with life, start writing; ink is the great cure for all human ills, as I have found out long ago.

— C. S. Lewis

November is just around the corner, and for writers that means NaNoWriMo. For those of you who have never heard of it, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it takes place during November. The main goal of NaNo is to write 50,000 words which ends up around 1,667 words each day. If you think this seems like an impossible feat, you are not alone. I still don’t know if I will be able to write that much in one month while being in college, but I’m excited to try.

I have “tried” to participate in NaNo a few times before, but I have never gotten very far. When I say I “tried” NaNo, I mean I said I would do NaNo and gave up on or before day 1. This year is different. I have spent the past few weeks prepping and outlining my novel. This next month is going to be a whirlwind for sure, but I can’t wait!

Have you heard of NaNoWriMo before? Do you like writing? Do you have any tips for new writers?
