Until I joined a writer’s critique group at a local library, I had never heard the term “NaNoWriMo”. I thought maybe it was some kind of Japanese thing like anime or something. NaNoWriMo is short for “National Novel Writing Month”.
From November 1-Novemeber 30, writers participating in NaNoWriMo commit to complete a 50,000-word manuscript. That’s a pretty decent commitment in and of itself.
I've been procrastinating on a novel for two years now! Hats off and a slight bow goes out to all the writers tackling this challenge.
