National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) starts Nov. 1, which means there's still time for you to get prepped and ready. NaNoWriMo is an annual writing challenge where the goal is to write a 50,000-word novel in only 30 days.
As you read thisessay, I'll be taking a nap. Or relaxing on my sofa, eating bonbons and reading Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories. I'll feel that I deserve these luxuries because, between November 1 and November 30, I will have written an entire novel.
