Are you familiar with NaNoWriMo?
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.
National Novel Writing Month is right around the corner - beginning November 1.
If all this sounds like Greek to you, here's the webpage that will answer all your questions - http://nanowrimo.org/
In brief, from the webpage -
"National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
National Novel Writing Month is also a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (formerly known as the Office of Letters and Light) that believes your story matters.
National Novel Writing Month believes in the transformational power of creativity. We provide the structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds—on and off the page."
Although I have known of NaNoWriMo for some time now, I have not participated.
While I've been busy writing essays and short stories, and have had some success with having them published, I have two novels that have been "in the works" for entirely too long.
Lately, they've been speaking to me.
Saying, "Hey! Get me outta here!"
So, I'm enlisting the help of NaNoWriMo for motivation and the push I definitely need to see if I can't get these manuscripts moving.
Cross your fingers, please.
I had no idea how annoying an ignored manuscript could be.
