The start of National Novel Writing Month is officially less than one week away. Once more, I will not be participating, officially, in NaNoWriMo, but I do plan to use November to reassess my writing goals for the year and determine one project to focus on through the month.
Many writers lead busy lives, and while it sounds pretty dang awesome to be able to say you wrote a 50k novel in a month, often life gets in the way, and the fledgling manuscript sputters out around 35000 words.
This year,Grammarly is hosting an interesting take on NaNoWriMo by organizing a collaborative novel writing project. Everything from plot to protagonist is determined by group consensus, and published NaNoWriMo author Gayle Brandeis will be writing the opening and closing sentences. Everything in between will come from participants.
Sound cool to you? Check out the Grammarly blog for more info.
