Just in case you forgot, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) starts today.
Now in its 10th year, NaNoWriMo is a month-long writing event held every November that lets participants craft a 50,000 word novel in a short time frame. With this limited window of opportunity, the focus is on output, not content.
Want to take the chance at writing a novel in a month's time with the support of thousands of other writers? Sign up here.
