It's all these things, and more.
One of the things that happens in November is the National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo.
It's pretty much what it sounds like, and it has one simple goal:
Write 50,000 words in 30 days.
The goal may be simple, but the road is long and hard. So I thought that I'd share some of my preparations for NaNoWriMo with you over the next seven days.
Our countdown to NaNo starts here, with the 26th of October, so join me as I get ready for the tough ride ahead.
