November 1 starts National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.
This is a good-natured challenge to write in a fun, by the seat-of-your-pants, fast as you can way with a goal of a 50K novel by the time the clock strikes midnight on November 30.
NaNoWriMo is for everyone who wants to tackle writing. This is a great way to kick start a story. Get the first draft done so you can do the more enjoyable part of revising and polishing (at least I find that part more enjoyable).
Sign up to participate http://nanowrimo.org
There are local meetings of like-mind folks that you can connect with in your area. There are coaches and cheerleaders on the site. You can track your progress and those of friends. You can compete with others, if that's your thing. You can buddy others for encouragement and accountability.
If you think you might have a story in you, now's the time to let it out and give it a try.
