Nano Wrimo

Nano Wrimo? National Novel Writing Month. For all you would-be, could-be, oh so wanna'-be writers this is the site and the month for you! Your mission...should you choose to accept it? Write 50,000 words in the month of November. And you won't be alone. Oh no, no, no last year 72,000 writers around the world participated. Nano Wrimo begins November 1 and ends November 30th. Nothing spurs the creative mind more than being give the permission to write...uh...doody.. and not feel bad about it. And when you are cranking out 1,665 words a day...you are definitely going to get some heavy duty doody. BUT that's what editing is for. That's why we re-write, and re-write and re-write and RE-WRITE! To turn those doody covered gems into beautiful polished stones...that sparkle. But Nano Wrimo isn't about the polishing, the shining...oh no Nano Wrimo is about turning off the critic in your head and making progress! Getting that first...oh so doody heavy draft on paper. Because you can NOT edit a blank page. But you can edit 50,000 words into a wonderful masterpiece. So come on...you know you wanna'.
