     Do any of you like to write? Well, November is the national novel writing month! Or NaNoWriMo for short. This is a national activity that encourages the art of literature.
     Every year, published and celebrated authors and even regular people are challenged to write 50,000 words or more by the end of November. It is a fictional book that was completely started and finished within the month of November.
     You can't have written any part of it or even outlined it. You can have an idea starting in your head, but try not to think too much about the plot, since many people outline books in their heads.
     If you want to sign up, it is free and it is a very trusted website. www.nanowrimo.org is the URL. Remember, when you are making your quick and easy account, click the button that says you are 13 and up, because this means the website is not violating the law that no personal information may be solicited from children 12 years and younger over the internet. It means you knowingly give your permission to have an account created.
     I entered a few days ago, and I have been waiting for three painstaking days to start writing, and today is November 1 so I began writing. I have 494 words of 50,000 so far. I might just make it. The goal is 1,667 words a day. In 30 days. Do you think I can do it? Do you think YOU can do it? Even if you aren't going to participate, do you think you WOULD be able to do it? Leave your answers in the comments!

Good luck and get writing!

     Every fictional novel has a main question, a question that decides the plot. What is yours?

Random + Writing + 50,000 words,
