This Friday starts National Novel Writing Month, where writers from all walks of life spend an entire month writing a 50,000 word novel. You can read more about it at National Novel Writing Month’s Website. I took the plunge and signed up just this afternoon. I have two writing buddies who are participating with me – a good friend from college and a talented student from our homeschool co-op. We are planning on encouraging each other throughout the month and then having a celebratory party/dinner/weekend-of-fun after we submit our word counts.
Today, though, today is the day for recruitment. The longer I interact with people, and the longer I teach others about writing, the more I am convinced of this: Everyone has a story. And you need to tell yours.
So, what are you waiting for? Start sketching some ideas and put your typing fingers to work this Friday!
