Every year in November, thousands of writers gather at NaNoWriMo united with one goal in mind: to write a novel 50,000 words long and to do in in 30 days or less.
The secret to achieving this goal is to write each and every day and to write at least 1,667 words per day for 30 days. That is the bare minimum. If you can write 2,000 words per day you'll do even better.
Why do it at all? Because if you have a book you want to write, the only way to get it written is to actually write it. Getting a book out of your head and onto paper is the hardest thing for writers to do. It's much easier to talk about your book than write it down. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to get that book out f your head and onto your page.
No, you have NOT reached the end of this article! What you have reached is the end of what it currently online. The rest is coming, hopefully it'll be on here in a day or three so keep checking back. I will remove this message at the same time I put the rest of it online.
As my long time readers will already
know a server crash took down most of the old free-hosted site on June
4, 2013 (which was online since 1997 and had reached 6,000+ pages).
Thankfully everything was saved on a separate hard-drive and the site is
being rebuilt with a new host and for the first time on it's own
I am currently moving all 6,000 questions&answer articles to this site one page at a time, at a rate of about 4 to 7 new pages being added each day, so be patient. Not all links are yet clickable. This process started on September 2, 2013 and will be ongoing at least through to January 2014. (And it may be well into 2017 before all 6,000 pages will be back online if I continue at this rate of 5 a day.)
