Two of my novels were born from National Novel Writing Month, so I figure I'm an every other year sort of participant. (This being a year of editing rather than raw writing.) But for those of you who need to just dive in and DO it - NaNoWriMo is a fantastic way to get the ball rolling, or the fingers typing.
Here's a sweet inspirational video from Alan Silberberg - via Cynthia Leitich Smith's Cynsations.
Happy writing to all!
