Throughout the month of November you have one goal as a writer: Write a novel of at least 50,000 words, before December hits.

Every year, thousands of writers of all ages spend the month of November in the company of crumpled papers and the clacking of keyboards in the hopes of finishing their novels (or at least reaching the word limit). While it's challenging and time consuming, it encourages you to set real goals and get serious about your stories. I would encourage anyone interested to check out the National Novel Writing Month website ( www.nanowrimo.org/ ) and at least register. It allows you to have more support than some other places could, because it is specially made for this event.

Now, if enough of you say you will try it, I will post tips and motivational journals here on #Live-Write-Now to help you reach 50,000 words by the end of November. (Also, if you say you'll give it a shot, no registration or anything needed other than taking on a serious commitment, I'll give you a Llama if I haven't already as a good luck gesture.)

Here's a Washington Post article about NaNoWriMo: www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/s…

Happy Writing!

This is my sixth time doing NaNoWriMo! I didn't win the first year, but I've won four times since then. Really hoping to add another one to that streak. =D Currently at ~6500 words.

I attempted NaNoWriMo last year, and I reached the word limit easily. Couldn't complete the entire novel, though. In fact, I'm still working on it now, one year later haha. I wish I could just take a staycation and do nothing but write. :/

Oh wow! Good for you. How many words is it now? Are you going to try to finish it this month?

As of this moment, 131,087 and counting. Although it won't be much higher, as I'm only two or three chapters away from finishing. If I can get it done this month, that would be great haha.

I'm currently in the process of writing the climax. Not necessarily the last chapter, but the end of the story.
