Authors are gearing up for #NanoWrimo!

If you’re unfamiliar with the popular author hashtag, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, which takes place in November.

If you go to NaNoWriMo’s website, you will find a great tool for writing a book during the month of November. Authors who use this tool set out on November 1st to write a 50k word novel by the last day of month.

Author, Martina Billings-Mcatee says, “I wrote my first book on NaNoWriMo, five books later and I’m still writing. It helped me. It gives me a goal even if I don’t meet it. It helps me focus.” 

How does it work?

First, you need to make a profile on NanoWriMo. As you work through your 50k words, you update your progress on oh your profile and are awarded badges along the way

Don’t let your hard work go to manuscript purgatory
