For anyone who doesn't know what NaNoWriMo is, it's National Novel Writing Month. It's a month-long challenge where you're challenged to write a 50k novel in one month. The site's pretty cool and has loads of resources and fun things.

If you're seventeen or under and are thinking this sounds insane, and have never done Nano before, I also recommend looking at the Young Writers Programme, which is run by Nano but for younger folk. You can assign yourself your own goal on there so it's a great place to start out before you go for the adult wordcount. We've been doing it here for a long time so if you have any questions, please ask!

We will also hopefully have the chatroom functioning by November (it's working right now, just needs some fiddling with on the moderating end of things), and we will be running word wars! These are like timed races to see who can write the most in 10/15/20 minutes (which also helps that wordcount go up and stop you being distracted).

I'm very looking forward to this year.
