Ever seriously thought about writing a novel? Maybe you’ve thought about writing a novel, but talked yourself out of it before you even gave it a moment of contemplation! November 1st marks the start of NaNoWriMo….that’s short for National Novel Writing Month and if writing a novel is one of your secret dreams, you should check out the NaNoWriMo site.
You can easily sign up on the site and join the thousands of others across the globe who will be working along side you through the month to complete the goal of finishing a 50,000 word novel by 11:59 pm November 30th. The site enables you to track your progress, gives you pep talks and allows to meet fellow writers near and far….pretty cool….check it out here:
Hardbacks 75 cents
Paperbacks, textbooks, media, children’s books 50 cents or 3 for $1
