November is National Novel Writing Month. The purpose of the annual event is to encourage creative writing and to create a social partnership of writers. The challenge is to write the first 50,000 words of a new novel starting November 1st and ending November 30th. Since 1999 the project has grown to over 200,000 entries.
To participate, register on the project’s website and write a few words about your novel. Writers submit their novels for word counting at the end of the month. To register or to find out more about the project go to http://www.nanowrimo.org/
