Over the years we've seen thousands of LJ users participate in NaNoWriMo, and this year we wanted to make it a little bit easier for you to get involved.
November is NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved. Participants begin writing on November 1st and the goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30th.
Because of the limited writing window, the ONLY thing that matters in NaNoWriMo is output. It's all about quantity, not quality. The kamikaze approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.
Visit the official NaNoWriMo site to learn all about it.
