Getting ready for Nano?

November is National Novel Writing Month, when writers around the globe strive to write 50,000 words in 30 days. 

To find out more, go to where you can browse the forums and look at the FAQs to get an idea of how it works. This year, Devon has a Municipal Liason; someone who has volunteered to be a point of contact for the region. Having somebody in place to organise events and generally cheer everybody on could be a great opportunity to make contact with other writers from the Devon area.

October is also known as 'prep'-tober. When Nano-ists get ready for the writing marathon to come (unless, of course you're a complete pantser and choose to start with a blank screen on November 1st), and it's the ideal time to find out what to expect.

And where better to look than in this month's Writing Magazine, which has an article featuring Exeter Writers, Elizabeth Ducie, N. Sian Southern and Angela Wooldridge as they talk about their experiences of last year's NaNoWriMo.
