You may recall it was nearly a year ago that I found myself spooked at the prospect of taking part in National Novel Writing Month.
Beginning November 1, this annual event invites writers from around the world to participate in a month-long pledge to roll up their sleeves, put their thinking caps on and get writing.
The goal? A completed 50,000-word novel in 30 days.
The bad news is that I never did reach that goal in 30 days.
The good news? I am still writing, still dialed in and still feeling inspired.
So, I guess there wasn’t so much to be afraid of after all.
Of course, November is just around the corner. And for any writers out there who are looking for a reason to step on the gas pedal and get moving, there is still time to get yourself in gear.
Click here for a quick look at what you can do to prepare for National Novel Writing Month — a potentially life-altering, game-changing experience that will finally put your words on the page and your story on the map.
