National Novel Writing Month truly is for everyone, whether you’re a professional, published writer or a newbie who needs a push to pick up a pencil for the first time.

(Never heard of this? Nicknamed NaNoWriMo, it’s a challenge issued to any and all to write a 50,000-word novel during November. Make it good or bad, social or solitary — it’s all up to you.)

NaNoWriMo’s executive director, Grant Faulkner, went on the Writer’s Digest Podcast recently to keep spreading the word about it.

He also explains why even pros should consider doing it and shares planning and creativity-boosting techniques from his own career.

Head here to take a listen!

That's great, Robert! I'm thinking about giving it a try for the first time in years as well. I'm one of those adults who wrote all the time as a youngster, and working for Fussy has made me really wonder why I haven't started back up again (hi, indie revolution!). Best of luck to you with writing your novel and in building a social support network for other novelists!

Great. Just started as Volunteer Manager at More Than Books (was library, now community Hub). I'm sure we will be able to push and support somehow. I love the idea of a socially produced novel. As a (yet to be published novelist) I'm certainly up for the challenge.
