National Novel Writing Month starts soon!

NaNoWriMo 2011 supporter badge with typewriterWho's doing NaNoWriMo this year?

If you want to join the nonsense of writing a whole novel (50,000 words) in November, you can start preparing now if you'd like by working on an outline and research. (No prose must be included in your November word count, but you can do a little work ahead if you're in the mood.)

Here's my news: After three years in a row of writing a novel in a month, I'm going to sit this November out.

I've officially written too many novels now — but have yet to finish the dang things!

So my November is going to be dedicated to my own private NaNoEdMo, National Novel Editing Month. If you want to join me, we could make it a bit more, um, national.

I hope you'll hold me accountable to editing, and I'd be glad to give you pep talks on writing. I'm planning to work out some sort of schedule for my editing so I know how much I'm required to do each day to make sure I finish by the end of the month.

(Of course, further editing might require further months, but I'm hoping I can get the bulk done while properly motivated!)

Who's in for NaNoWriMo? Does anyone want to edit a previously finished work alongside me instead?
