2009 National Book Awards and NaNoWriMo

So the National Book Awards finalists were announced on Wednesday and I just got a chance to look at them. I haven’t read any of the books yet but I’m looking forward to reading them. I just ordered a lot of them from the library so I’ll be posting reviews of those soon. You can check out the finalists here and maybe you’ll want to read them too.

Also, NaNoWriMo is coming up in fifteen days! It’s almost here. You should definitely sign up. All you have to do is write a 50,000 word novel in a month. Think about it: that’s only about 1,600 words a day! That’s not so bad. And remember, NaNoWriMo isn’t about writing a perfect novel—it’s just about actually finishing a novel. It’s just a rough draft and after you’re done, you can perfect it as much as you please. How can you miss out on this epic event? Sign up here:
