Let's face it: If you're participating in National Novel Writing Month, what you're really doing is writing a first draft of something. Could be fiction. Could be nonfiction. But it's a first draft. And Nanowrimo is a way to help you work on that first draft regularly enough to actually finish it. That's what makes Nanowrimo a clever idea.
I have lots of friends who like to participate in this writing event each November, and they're talking about it on their blogs, so this week, I'm linking you to what they have shared. Enjoy!
