November is National Novel Writing Month. People all over the world make the effort to write a complete novel in ONE month. This crazy, busy experience is known as NaNo WriMo.
Okay, sure, the work is not going to be ready to send out to agents. Revision will definitely be required. However, if you commit, then you'll have a completed rough draft by December.
NaNo WriMo can lead to bigger and better things.
My friend Sonia participated in Nano Wrimo last year and spent time polishing the manuscript. Just last month she learned that more than one agent wanted to represent her. How cool is that?
So...give it a try. Maybe your book will be in the hands of a publisher this time next year!
