It’s National Novel Writing Month, when anyone who’s ever thought of writing a book is encouraged to join others in attempting to write 50,000 words.
What to write about? Well, if a poll from ThriftBooks is to be believed, half of us think our own lives are book- or movie-worthy.
The site’s poll of 2,000 Americans also revealed that while only 15 percent of respondents have started writing a book, 8 percent (over half!) of those have finished, and another 6 percent are at least halfway done.
But our favorite takeaway: 62 percent of respondents may not have appreciated assigned reading in school, but they later came to love some of the books they were ordered to read.
