(or NaNoWriMo) is a little more than a week away. On November 1st, thousands of authors will start writing with the goal of completing a 50,000-word novel by midnight on November 30th. That's a hell of a goal, and it requires that you write an average of 1,666 words per day for an entire month. Sound inspiring? Painful? A bit of both?
