The Coming of NaNoWriMo (Week Ending November 3)

National Novel Writing MonthThis week, we’re getting ready to celebrate. No, not Halloween. We did that last week. (And if you haven’t read the traveling carnival stories by our Cafe writers, you really should.)

We’re celebrating the written word. The writers in the Cafe are in preparation mode for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Thirty days, 50,000 words.

If you’re not familiar with this event, it’s a month-long endurance test for writers all over the world. Starting on November 1, writers are challenged to write 50,000 words before November 30. That works out to approximately 1,667 words each day.

Over the next five days, our writers will be writing about their upcoming NaNo projects. You’ll get a sneak preview of the stories that our writers are planning and plotting in anticipation of the November 1 start date.

Then, throughout November, we’ll be hitting you from the trenches. Our normal weekly post assignments will be replaced by short updates from our writers on their NaNo progress. So this will be the last update from me for awhile.

Until Next Month,

The Cafe Management

Cafe Management is run by the administration of The Confabulator Cafe. We keep things running smoothly, post stories by guest authors, and manage other boring back-end tasks.
