For those who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, it is a writing marathon.

November is the chosen month for writers who want to complete a novel at least 50, 000words long.

Never heard of NaNoWriMo? Goodness, where have you been? NaNoWriMo is the fastest growing online novel writing community ever. The aim is very simple. Every November 1st people all over the world sit down at their computers to write a novel in one month. It must be 50,000 words, and completed by 11:59:59, November 30. Your novel can be uploaded at that point and will appear like an online book with your name on it, and pages to turn. You will have competed against yourself and won. There are no prizes, other than entry into the archives as a NaNoWriMo winner, and a certificate. That’s all there is to it. Easy. Right?

You can join the community of writers who are already on this race HERE.

For more information, Read the CWN blog post or go to the NaNoWriMo site.

Now get writing.
