Good Luck NaNoWriMoers!

It’s National Novel Writing Month! And once again, I’m astounded by people who hate this project. (Has Laura Miller written her annual screed yet? I can’t wait.) Here’s a post from a year ago:

NaNoWriMo: A Full-Throated Defense

Democracy, Tolstoy (again!), NaNoWriMo, and hate. A good post.

Onward and upward, everyone! Good luck with the writing!

  1. I’m not a writer, so at first I thought “NaNo”WriMoers referred to writing something very short due to “nano”, and became a bit excited. I was even ready with my post. Here it is. “It was a dark and stormy night. The end.” Knowing several writers myself, they seem to sometimes need a little extra incentive to get the creative juices flowing. I’m surprise to hear so many people dislike the idea.

      1. The main one I’ve seen is the whole “let’s write a novel in a month and declare it finished, and then publish it on Kindle!” But that’s a problem with the people, not the challenge – NaNo offer up quite a lot of warning that your writing will be horrendous in November, so the people who consciously choose to do things like that are the ones at fault, not the challenge. It’s annoying how all us honest writers get flak for it. *sigh*
