In November, writers around the world throw sanity to the winds and challenge themselves to write 50,000 words during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), sweating and stressing for 30 days. Surviving 30 Days of Literary Madness is a daybook of support, encouragement and the occasional kick in the pants to help make the stress more bearable and keep your eyes focused on your goal.
For each day of this mad sprint, there is a quote and essay designed to help keep you going at the keyboard, along with other pieces about preparation and the novelizing hangover that comes in December. There are also pages for those other moments, when you've fallen slightly behind — or you realize this may not be a year you cross the finish line. No matter how your November novel experience is going, this book will be a companion for each day.
