I will be participating in NoNoWriMo this year (as I do yearly), and I hope you will join me. If you have a story to tell, take the leap with those going through the same process.
Many people have always wanted to write, but don't know where to begin. There is no better time to get started than during this event when others with the desire to write come together and suffer together. The creative process can be more rewarding when you don't go through it alone. Meet other writing buddies online (There are even local NaNo Facebook groups), and find write-ins in your area. Challenge yourself to reach 50,000 words by the end of November. Even if you don't reach the word total goal, you may find inspiration in the experience. NaNoWriMo comes every year, so you can always improve.
