NaNoWriMo. The idea is to write a 50,000 word first draft og a novel during the month of November; that's 1,667 words per day. This challenge has been such a wonderful thing in my life as a writer. I have had the fortunate pleasure of meeting other writers, challenging myself in more ways than one and being a part of something really wonderful.
I am about to conclude day two and already I've written 4,000 words. SO far, I am really happy with what I've written, too. If you have a novel waiting to be written - I highly recommend this challenge. It's not too late to staqrt, either.
