Are You Ready For NanoWriMo?

A few years ago, I picked up a book at the bookstore called "No Plot, No Problem." The basic premise of the book was to overcome the number one illness that plagues would-be novelists: procrastination.

Procrastination has been one of my close friends for many years. I have used many different methods to combat my procrastination over the years to various degrees of moderate success. I have never taken on my procrastination in hand-to-hand combat...until this year.

November is National Novel Writing Month month. It's better known by its acronym NanoWriMo -- and you can visit the website here. Thousands of people around the globe sign up to challenge themselves and others to write 50,000 words in a month. That's the word count of most novels.

I personally think that it's a win-win situation. If you don't make 50,000 words in a month, you may end up with something that's kind of intriguing that can be finished over the next eleven months. If you do finish...how great would you feel.

The contest is only three days old so if you sign up today you'll only have to do a couple thousand word catch-up to be on track to make the goal.

Sign up today...maybe soon you'll be writing books instead of reading of them.
