Guess what tomorrow is.
First day of November!
First day of standard time!
National Novel Writing Month.
Bet you'd forgotten about that.
I've blogged about it a few times.
One of my favorite 2013 posts was inspired by Caroline Starr Rose's Fake-o-NaNo. Which is totally how I do a Novel Writing Month.
Here's it is. (You can click HERE or read some of it below:)
Three years ago, when I was between projects and needed to jumpstart something new, I did NaNoWriMo.
Mine, too, was Fake-o.
But if you're a writer who needs inspiration. Or wants to try something new, give it a whirl.
a friend cookies, team up with an online writing partner, or heck- just
bake your own cookies and don't admit to a single soul what you're up
to. Don't sweat it if what turns up is unreadable.
Or as Caroline says:
The "draft" I finished with is quite possibly the messiest, worst thing I've ever written.
But it's a beginning. And sometimes that's all it takes to create something worth revising. And revising. Over and over again.
