November welcomes NaNoWriMo and The Writer's Block!

Greetings, All!

I am excited about the month of November as it brings with it a trip down memory lane with some of our most popular alums from The Writer's Block! (More on that in a few days!) 

It is also an opportunity for writers and would-be-writers to finally get their novels out of their heads and down on paper! National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) kicks off tomorrow. It is time to throw away your edit button and commit to writing 50,000 words by the 11th hour on November 30th.

Sound daunting? Don't over-think it. Choose one of those great ideas, do a bit of pre-writing, and see where your imagination takes you. This is great practice for many of us who get easily sidetracked, lose interest, or need a bit of support and motivation to finish the job. You will have the opportunity to meet up with writers both online and face-to-face for write-ins, discussions, and critiques. Learn more here!

Don't expect to have a polished best-seller on December 1st! You could have a great first-draft, though (smile). Remember, when you are ready to promote your project, we have several promotional packages via The Writer's Block that will support you on release day and beyond.

Keep your pen to the paper! Remember, inspiration is everywhere...
