National Novel Writing Month

Behind the cool acronym (NaNoWriMo) is a cool idea. National Novel Writing Month is a challenging, but inspiring initiative for wannabe writers like me – a 50,000 word novel in November. Phew. Find out more on their website where you can sign up for free and get inspired by lots of cool posts, such as this one focusing on why people write.

Chris B., Executive Director: I write because I love making people laugh, and the written word is an unbeatable joke-delivery device. I write because conjuring sentences and stories still seems like magic to me, and I don’t get many other opportunities to feel like a magician. Mostly I write because I want to find out what happens next.

Max, Intern: I write because once something is written down, I can move on. Writing and printing a story is giving a memory a place in the world.
