This has got to be one brilliant idea – National Novel Writing Month. Write every day for one month and you end up with a November novel! No, I’d never heard of it either – I always associate November with Movember. Too late to join NaNoWriMo now but not too late to check out the writers’ tips that went with it. I particularly liked Scott Westerfeld’s. He talks about things I’ve never thought about like reading your work backwards to check for spelling and grammar, or being left-handed (for those of us right-handed ones) for a day to increase creativity levels. Well, why not? Even though I’m continuously writing novels, I’m putting NaNoWriMo in my diary for 2010.
