National Novel Writing Month

Sara Z. said on her blog, stories of a girl, "Speaking of which, if you have often said to yourself, "One day I will write a novel," now is your chance. November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). If I can do it, you can do it!"

I've written stuff in the past but lately I've been a bit lazy about writing.

So now I've been inspired. So I joined. Thanks to Sara!

Simply put, the goal is to write one 50,000 word (175 page) novel in a month, starting November 1 and ending midnight November 30.

Is it cheating that I have an idea, plot and main character in my head already? And that this is the nudge to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) in a serious way?

More information at the NaNoWriMo site.

No it's not cheating (I checked it out). I'm doing it too!

No, Liz! That absolutely is not cheating! We all have ideas in our heads for years. We just need the right timing and nudge to get them down. Go for it!
