November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. It challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel between November 1 and 30. I’m on the threshold of a new novel, so I’ve decided to participate.
What encourages a novelist to write? Deadlines, a muse, poverty, boredom. NaNoWriMo is an artificial deadline. Nothing happens at the end of the month if you don’t hit 50,000 words. Still, it might offer a bit of motivation, and that’s a good thing.
During this coming month I also expect to publish my new novel Blood Anjels and re-release my first novel Keeping Private Idaho. It will be a busy month.
