National Novel Writing Month is just a few days away. The goal of NaNoWriMo participants is to begin writing Nov. 1 and write a 175-page novel (50,000 words) by Nov. 30th. It's not suppose to be good writing, rather the idea is to force yourself to write without regard to quality, plot, characters, perfect grammar or any of those other things that prevent writers from putting words down on a page.

Thousands of people from over a dozen countries have of signed up already; if you would like to register, go to

The official website offers local contacts, online forums and  tips throughout the month to keep your writing moving. Chris Baty, founder of NaNoWriMo, has also written a book to help you with your goal, "No Plot? No Problem!"
