NaNoWriMo 2012

It's been a while since we have posted about NaNoWriMo, so some of you might need a refresher. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is sort of like a competition and sort of forced motivation for aspiring authors. You sign up on this website and pledge to write a 50,000 word novel (approximately 175 pages depending on layout) from November 1 to 11:59:58 PM on November 30. If this sounds like a lot of writing, well it is. Last year 256,618 people signed up and about 36,843 finished. That may not seem like the best conversion rate but just think - that is 36,843 novels finished, or at least the first draft of 36,843 hastily written novels finished.

I know what you're thinking, it's already the 2nd of November and you are already 1666.66 words off pace! Well, Neatoramanauts, you have plenty of time to catch up as I am a paltry 356 words into mine. Writers block. Anyone else up for the challenge?

Back in the day Neatorama had an author, Stacy, complete the challenge. So it is possible!
