I first heard about National Novel Writing Month when I was a freshman in college. I’ve never felt like I had the time to participate, but in some ways that’s the point of NaNoWriMo. You make the time to write a novel in between the rest of your life. You join a community of other aspiring writers, and at the end you’ve accomplished something that very few people ever will: an entire novel.

The fact that NaNoWriMo has a deadline, one month for a full-on novel, means that you can set daily or weekly goals to accomplish. This can be a great lesson for accomplishing large projects. Why not try getting the whole family involved in the project? Writing a novel can help improve your child’s writing skills, and improve research skills (depending on the topic).

So when somebody asks you what you did this November…why not say you wrote a novel?

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. You made some decent points there. I looked on the internet for the issue and found most individuals will go along with with your website.

  3. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.
