Since they explain it better than I ever could, here's the description from the NaNoWriMo site:
"National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel."
I know, I know, it sounds intimidating...and to be honest it is quite the challenge, but it's not impossible. If you don't believe me, check out this list of best sellers that got their start as NaNo novels.
This year I'm going to try something different and I'm going to attend some in-person NaNo meetings/write-ins and I'll be sure to report in on what they're like and report in on my weekly word count progress.
Tell me Killer Friends:
Are you one of those people who say "I always wanted to write a book"?
Have you been a NaNoWriMo participant in the past?
