Ever heard of National Novel Writing Month?

I only just found out about it this past September, browsed upon it just by accident. Read up on what it’s for, and decided to go for it.

What is it? Basically, it’s a creative writing frenzy, designed to get you out of your comfort zone and into some smooth writing without editing.

Without editing? That’s right! Save the editing and the grammatical corrections for December, your main goal for November is output and word count.

You can write the worst stuff that has ever come to your mind, but it causes you to write and write and write. Makes it easier to allow ideas to come to your mind if you aren’t constantly going back over every sentence to make sure it’s grammatically correct. Get your ideas out onto paper (or the computer screen) before you worry about fixing it.

It’s a great idea.

So I’m trying it. Still a work in progress.
