Halloween is upon us! While I will be nibbling on plenty of candy and spending the evening trick or treating with my little siblings, another holiday is occupying my brain space: It’s the eve of NaNoWriMo!
National Novel Writing Month, usually shortened to NaNoWriMo, is a month-long writing marathon that commences on November 1st. It celebrates putting the pen to the paper or the fingers to the keyboard and pushes you to write and write and write with the goal of hitting 50,000 words by November 30th. It encourages living in the moment of the first draft and halting your inner editor and critic for thirty days.
