November is a busy month for writers: it’s National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo.

What happens during NaNoWriMo?

It’s simple really. To celebrate the only official book-writing month of the year, writers are encouraged to spend 30 days putting their fingers to the keyboard, completing a 50,000-word book by November 30th.

One month. Boom. Done. You’re one step (a first draft) closer to becoming a published author.

If you have struggled with finding the time and discipline to finish your book, this is one of the easiest ways to jump those hurdles. Your word count can vary from day-to-day, but you will write an average of 1,667 words per day—a totally manageable number.

Throughout the month, we’re sharing tools, tips, and tricks to finally getting your book done. We’re here to encourage you through the process!

We know, we’re a few days late to the party with this post but the good news is that this is still 100% doable! Be sure to #NaNoWriMo and #MillCityPress in all of your posts about writing this month. We can’t wait to hear how your manuscript is coming along.

On behalf of all of us at Mill City Press, happy writing!
