So in case you don’t know this, Write 2 Be Magazine is really big on celebrating National Novel Writing Month and fostering all of the creativity that is expressed during this event. Now for those of you who may have never heard of this event, National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) is a month long write-a-thon that is meant to encourage would be novelists to write a 50,000 word (or first draft) novel in 30 days. Now of course most novels are longer than that, unless you’re doing young adult, but the point is to get you motivated with the knowledge that you are not doing this alone. There are millions of others out there writing alongside of you and there is actually a really cool writing community that has developed out of this. I will include the link to the NaNoWriMo website somewhere in this post but for now I just want to let you know that any post that the magazine will posts this month will be NaNoWriMo focused and they may include anything from tips, or links to writing videos, or maybe just a note of inspiration to keep those of you participating in NaNoWriMo motivated. I hope that all of you have prepped for your novels, if that is something that you do and if you are a pantser (someone who just dives right into a book and writes without an outline) then God Bless you and what is your secret lol!
