National Novel Writing Month – #NaNoWriMo

It’s that time again!!

November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo.  The challenge is to write 50,000 words of your novel in 30 days.


That’s roughly 1700 words per day.

..those old familiar clicks. If you listen carefully, you’ll hear 4 of them. the clicks… that would be the last sound that any of them would hear, that night.

Stay tuned!!
