November means NaNoWriMo!

Posted on

November means Nanowrimo. National Novel Writing Month. The time when I write 50000 words in 30 days. Which isn’t novel length, and the length isn’t the only thing that’s different.

I’ve written several novels to date, and it’s been a learning curve. The first couple were a download of some stories I had in […]
