NaNoWriMo-- National Novel Writing Month, that is-- is right around the corner and I really encourage you to sign up today and participate through the month of November with thousands of other writers. In fact, let's all sign up and talk each other through it, shall we?
Since my first novel came out in 2006, a lot of people have said two things to me over and over: They've asked how long it took to write and they've lamented that they wish they had time to sit down and write a book themselves. Well, I have news: The time is always right. You're always going to be busy. And, writing a book is simply a matter of writing a little bit every day. Seriously.
So, who's in for representing Club Chicago Subtext during NoNaWriMo? The more the merrier! Sign up at the NaNoWriMo website, then both shoot me a friend request and let us know you signed up in the comments section here so other Chicago Subtext readers can watch your progress, and so that we can all keep in touch through the month-long novel-writing adventure.
