You have read all the Harry Potter Books, watched the movies, and you are excited. You wonder if you could write as interesting a book. Can you? Well you may be able to find out soon.
 
   
November is “Novel Writing Month”. It started in a small way in the U.S as National Novel Writing Month 10 years ago, but has now become so popular and with the help of computers, is organised on the internet so people all over the world can participate.
 
   
What this event requires is that you write 50,000 words in the 30 days of November! So how much is 50,000 words? There are no judges, no prizes, and no entrance fees. If you participate, it’ll have to be for the love of writing. Also, if you submit the novel by the deadline and it satisfies the word count you will be declared a “winner” along with others who did so. Remember though, that there is an October 30 deadline to register and the lines may be jammed, so get your registration in early.
