Do you want to be a NaNoWriMo author? Hundreds of thousands of authors will be writing a novel this November. This can seem like a huge challenge. If you’re feeling a little intimidated, join me on this blog’s new Facebook page, where I’ll be posting daily NaNoWriMo secrets.
Each day, you’ll not only find secrets which will inspire and help you to write your novel, but you’ll also find strategies to help you to write a publishable novel.
By the way, if you’re not familiar with NaNoWriMo, November is National Novel Writing Month. Half a million authors all over the globe will commit to writing a novel of 50,000 words, in a month. That’s around 1,600 words a day.

Before you commit however, as we suggested in this post on NaNoWriMo secrets, you need to inspire yourself.

• Can I schedule 1,500 extra words a day? When? (You’ll need to know how many words you can write in an hour);
• How will I publish my NaNoWriMo novel?
• How will I promote my novel?
