Dear Burgeoning Novelist,
I'm writing to tell you I need you. That's right, I've been swirling around in the breathtaking labyrinths of your unconscious mind for a while now, and I'm itching to leap into the world. The only way I can come out, though, is if you commit to writing me in November.
So, if you haven't already, please sign in for 2013 NaNoWriMo and create me. For inspiration, just read Abby's story in our 2012 Annual Report. Abby's novel was such a powerful force that she faced down naysayers, found a way to write while juggling a busy life, and then crossed the finish line on the shoulders of NaNo's amazing community.
I know we'll write a gobsmacking, mind-bending story as well, so please commit to writing me in the following ways.
Start prepping with a NaNo notebook—just released! We have so much to decide. Who is our protagonist? What sorts of wicked plans are our tales' rapscallions hatching? Sure, I've been swimming among the stories in your unconscious depths, but we have to start working to get 'em all out onto the page.
So let's get in the noveling mood. Check out these NaNo Prep resources to get primed:
With rip-roaring wishes,
Your 2013 NaNo Novel
Word count: Ready to go...
As you can already guess, I'm in. What I'm wondering is who's willing to join me? Anyone up for a month-long bout of noveling insanity? While I can't say that I've ever managed to write a gobsmacking, mind-bending (at least in the positive sense) story, I can say from experience that it's a wild ride.
