If you are out of the loop on NaNoWriMo, don't feel bad, most of the world is. When I first read it, it sounded like Robot-ese. It stands for National Novel Writing Month. It's a month where writers just go nuts and write write write with the goal to get a novel written in one month. Trust me, as someone whose had writer's block on their own novel for a few years, writing a book in a month is a hefty feat indeed.
A lot of great stuff has come out of NaNoWriMo including the best sellers Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
So, if you are participating, are you stuck? It's the middle of the month and you may be losing some steam, especially in anticipation of the Holidays quickly approaching. A few weeks ago I ran across this article from GalleyCat, but I was saving it for mid month, so that y'all could get reinspired if you were losing steam. This article houses Two Years Worth of Tips in one article. You've got name genrators, title testers, pandora station ideas, you name it. So if you are stuck, or just bored, check it out!
lol... NaNoWriMo :D sounds so funny!!!
