National Novel Writing Month Is Underway

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is off to a fast-paced start. More than 100,000 writers from 70 countries are already well into their NaNoWriMo novels.

Last year, about 79,000 people took part in the challenge. And while the event stresses fun and creative exploration above publication, sixteen NaNoWriMo novelists have had their NaNo-novels published, including Sarah Gruen, author of New York Times #1 Best Seller, Water for Elephants.

My own novel-in-fast-progress, CLICK!, is off to a good start with about 27,000 words — well on its way to the 50,000 word goal.

You can learn more about National Novel Writing Month -- and even read an excerpt from CLICK! -- in my NaNoWriMo lounge.

While you’re lounging, I’ve got to get back to writing!
