We are at the half way point of NaNoWriMo, the writing project supported by an international non-profit organization that promotes writing with a National Novel Writing Month each November. Participating writers take on the challenge of writing 50,000 words between November 1st and 30th. Guild members Amy Zajac and Sandra Yeaman will be participating this year. Way to go! If you are also taking part, let us know by adding a comment below this post.

The NaNoWriMo website provides resources and support for participants as well as donated prizes. The prizes are mainly assorted discounts on services such as programs for writing, publishing, and marketing your work. January and February are called the “Now What?” months and are used by authors for revisions and the publishing process. For more information go to: http://nanowrimo.org/how-it-works.
