National Novel Writing Month is NOVEMBER
We at Castle in the Air are preparing to throw ourselves headlong into “thirty days of literary abandon” as we scribble along side writers from around the world participating in this year’s NaNoWriMo. Started in 1999 in San Francisco with 21 participants, NaNoWriMo has grown to become a community of hundreds of thousands of daring authors. The challenge is to write 50,000 words of a new novel during the month of November. We applaud NaNoWriMo for encouraging us to take artistic leaps, believe in bold acts of creativity, and bravely engage in the struggle to find our voices! Below are some tools of the trade that we find inspiring our literary flights of fantasy.
