I Won Nanowrimo
For all those people who say they want to write a book, but haven't, NaNoWiMo (National Novel Writing Month) is a great tool. It challenges you to write 50,000 words, the length of a short novel in the 30 days of November. It's difficult, scary, and loads of fun, and I've completed the challenge two years running now. This year's, my second one, is about 200 pages and might actually have a hope of being a decent novel someday, I'm almost done editing it the first time thorough, and soon I'll get my free proof copy- a reward for NaNo "winners" from CreateSpace.
