Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo, aka National Novel Writing Month! This is the time to get those novels done. 50,000 words in 30 days. Visit http://www.nanowrimo.org/ to create a writing account and take advantage of all the online tools including word count tracking.
Many authors have completed their novels in this month then been published. So also sign up for your local events to stay informed on meet ups. Working along with other writers is a way to stay motivated and maybe work out a few writing kinks. So throw those editors in the storage bin until the end of the month and just keep typing out that story!
