Get ready for National Novel Writing Month


National Novel Writing Month truly is for everyone, whether you’re a professional, published writer or a newbie who needs a push to pick up a pencil for the first time.

(Never heard of this? Nicknamed NaNoWriMo, it’s a challenge issued to any and all to write a 50,000-word novel during November. Make it good or bad, social or solitary — it’s all up to you.)

NaNoWriMo’s executive director, Grant Faulkner, went on the Writer’s Digest Podcast recently to keep spreading the word about it.

He also explains why even pros should consider doing it and shares planning and creativity-boosting techniques from his own career.
