Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? It means “National Write a Novel Month.” Some evil person came up with it…to try and force procrastinators to stop making excuses and sit down to write. The goal is 50,000 words in a month.


If that were me, by November 30th, I would end up tossing out 49,000 words. Only about 1,000 would be worth keeping.

Angela Hunt put this video together about the truth behind novelists’ stick-to-it-ive-ness…very amusing!

About Suzanne

Suzanne Woods Fisher writes bestselling, award winning fiction and non-fiction books about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books. Her interest in the Plain People began with her Old Order German Baptist grandfather, raised in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne's app, Amish Wisdom, delivers a daily Amish proverb to your phone or iPad. She writes a bi-monthly column for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. She lives with her family in California and raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you can't take life too seriously when a puppy is running through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.

    Fun! And as someone behind on her nano quota I can also say watching youtube videos is a great way to not write a novel.
