NaNoWriMo is upon us!

And for those who may not know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, where folks who have the idea and the desire try to complete the writing of a novel over the month of November.

If you're one of those intrepid souls, here's some really great advice from author Chuck Wendig on the perils, pitfalls, and pleasures of this particular exercise. The one note of his that I would particularly call out is that perfection is not the goal here; finishing a first draft of your novel is. So remember, it doesn't have to be perfect. It just has to be done come November 30.

So best of luck to all the NaNoWriMo participants! And once you're done, let's talk.
