NaNoWriMo 2010 is almost upon us!  Don’t know what NaNoWriMo is? It takes place each November, and is basically a no-holds-barred month-long writing free-for-all.  The goal is to knock out a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month.

50,000 words in 30 days.  Seem imposssible?  It’s not!  Thousands of people, including teens, have reached the 50,000 goal each of the past 10 years.  The key is to keep at it, just a few thousand words a day, no matter what.

Don’t think that your writing is any good?  Think of this novel as your first draft.  If your novel is rough and ugly at the end of the month, then just remember that you have 11 more months to polish it into a gem. Also remember that just writing something, anything, is an accomplishment.

About Donna B

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough to boo the Packers; but not long enough to pick a side in the Sox-Vs-Cubs civil dispute. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.
