It’s NaNoWriMo again!

Friday? Already? Where did that week go?

I am not doing NaNoWriMo, because as usual, my timing is very out, and I just finished a draft of my latest book as November started, and I’m knackered.

But I have huge respect for those of you that are! Huge shiny respect! It’s a brilliant concept. Not only does it get people writing – and some people need a challenge or a deadline to get writing started – but it gets people thinking about writing. Even those not participating will be reading about it and thinking ‘Hmm, maybe I’ll write something…’

Ignore the naysayers that say no-one ever wrote a book in a month. First of all, they are actually completely and utterly wrong. Second, it’s not supposed to be the finished article. It’s supposed to be a first draft that gets worked on.

I love jumping onto Twitter this time of year and see all these writers frantically working, and supporting each other, and encouraging and helping and coaching each other. Everyone comes together to push each other on.

So happy NaNoWriMo, whether as participant or slightly bemused onlooker. You’re all wonderful.
