November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. The idea is to put aside perfection, and turn off your inner editor, and simply engage in the act of writing. Aiming to do as big a chunk of writing as is manageable for you. Something magical happens when we let the words flow without censorship and though we may never share them, we might also discover a masterpiece. The night group is conducting our second annual NaNoWriMo challenge, a group writing task. Last year we wrote a chapter each of an old brother’s Grimm fairy tale – in our own unique styles and voices, ‘The Wolf and the Goatlings.’ By the end of the month we had a book and it is available on Amazon for anyone interested. This year we are each playing the role of a creature in an alien zoo. It’s a ton of fun, perhaps you might consider what your groups can get out of NaNoWriMo.
