November is National Novel Writing Month, so if you find yourself wishing to do something in your free time while also concentrating on growing a mustache this month, here is the right activity for you.
Described as “thirty days and nights of literary abandon!” how could anyone resist? But really, for those who have always wanted to write but can just never motivate themselves, this is the perfect time for you to really begin.
The National Novel Writing Month website allows you to make an account to plan your novel, put you in touch with others in the area trying to do the same, has pep talks for those down days, and overall they “provide the support, encouragement, and good old-fashioned kick in the pants you need to write the rough draft of your novel in November.”
For more inspiration, you can also explore the website to see fellow writers who have gotten published.
To get started, head over to the National Novel Writing Month website.
