Guest post by Sandy Coelho
It’s that time of year when writers and authors take a deep breath, and step up to meet a challenge to join colleagues from across the globe and make a commitment to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November.
It may seem daunting but offers the potential for satisfying fulfillment. Sandy Coelho has written an inspiring article that gives all the information you need to get started. Many of the followers of this blog are writers. I encourage you to step up and give it ago!
Now I’ll turn this post over to Sandy 🙂

Participants – Crack Your Knuckles and Start Your Engines!
NaNoWriMo is a week away. The event hosted by the Office of Letters and Light, is in its 13th year and has grown from 21 original participants to over 250,000 in 2011. The concept behind NaNoWriMo is to get people writing – anything; for 30 straight days. The objective is not quality, it’s quantity. Winners are the participants who reach the 50,000 word finish line. The aim of the OLL is to encourage writers and those who have always thought about writing to put their nose to the grindstone and just get it done!
