Aaaaand They're Off!

NaNoWriMo starts today for budding writers (or professionals) who want to try to write a 50,000 word novella in just 30 days!

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is the month of November every year. You don't have to worry about the quality of your work-as the introductory email says, that's for December!

For those of us who want to try to keep a steady pace, that means you need to do 1,666.66 words a day! (It sure sounds hard, but 200 words only takes just under 20 minutes!)

So what are you waiting for? You are already 1,666.66 words behind, but I'm sure you can make them up somehow.....good luck!
