What’s the point of participating in National Novel Writing Month? There are a few people out there that think NaNoWriMo isn’t right for them because they think if they force themselves to write 50,000 words in one month it won’t be good, and this may be true, but this could be said for any first draft of a novel. It’s not going to come out good, but it will get you started. NaNoWriMo is a huge community of writers coming together to help motivate each other. During the month of November, you learn how to get yourself into the habit of writing every day. If at the end of the month, it’s not too good, that’s fine. You can fix that in draft two. Don’t believe me? Well, check out some of these New York Times Bestselling authors that wrote their novels during NaNoWriMo.
