It's October and that means time to prepare for NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo is stands for Nationan Novel Writing Month. Every November people around the globe attempt to draft a novel in 30 days. The fine people who run NaNoWriMo have suggest that 50,000 should be the goal for the month. Last year, I participated and met that goal!! I was so proud of myself.
