November is NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month.  The goal is to write a novel of 50,000 words in one month.  Have you started yet?  Me neither.  I like to write, but novels would not be my choice; I would rather write short stories.  I feel like I have more control over short stories; I can never think how a longer piece would go, and I just end up dragging it out and making it something it was not meant to be.

I admire all those who can write the novels and be good at it!  I love to read the good ones and revel in the language and the story and the characters.

If you are attempting to write a novel this month, kudos to you!  Work hard!  Write every day!  Get that story on paper (or computer)!  Here are a few sites with some tips to help you along: first, the NaNoWriMo site.  A list of tips to survive the month.  And 10 tips for writing.  Of course, we have many resources available in the library as well, so come by to check out a book!

Happy Writing!
