I have 30 days to write 50,000+ words and submit it to the National Novel Writing Month website! I can’t use any previous writings but I can start planning and making notes. I will need to average 1,667 words per day to meet the length requirement–that’s doable! right? Plus, when I meet the deadline, createspace will send me 5 paperback copies.
There are over 3,000 members in the Raleigh-Durham area with write-ins, workshops, and parties all month. Sign up, start writing and upload the novel by midnight November 30th. The website has forums, pep talks from distinguished authors and fellow participants, and prizes for winners.
If you’re interested in this, let me know; I’d love to hear from fellow future-novelists!
