Ready, set, sharpen your pencils, fire up your computers – write! November is National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo starts Nov 1 and ends at midnight Nov 30 – all you need to do is complete 50,000 words within the month and upload your novel to the site. Of the 256,618 participants last year, 36,843 were “winners” in completing the task. Needless to say, for at least the next few weeks, writing is not a lonely task!
