Write a novel in a month

We can’t leave all the fun of November to our moustachioed friends, so for all you writers out there, it’s National Novel Writing Month. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Piece of cake, right? People all over the world of any age can take part and kick-start their novels in a frenzied month of writing and so I have also thrown my hat into the ring. I’ve even got a word counter on my blog to make me feel guilty if I’m not writing, so on that note – please check out my guest post on the lovely Michelle Muckley’s blog where I talk about my hopes and fears for NaNoWriMo 2013 (or Nanu-Nanu as some of my nearest and dearest are calling it!)  It’s NaNoWriMo Time!
