It’s time for NaNoWriMo!
For those who don’t know what this is, it’s the ‘National Novel Writing Month’ which is an annual event that occurs every November. Basically you write a novel in a month. Track your progress on the online site (http://nanowrimo.org/) and reach that fifty thousand word mark!
It’s all about the motivation. Time restrictions can get you going to produce that rough draft.
There are also a bunch of real life meet up that you can do, if you like to get social or want that kind of motivation. I, personally, prefer a more solitary approach.
