Letter to the Members
From Executive Vice President
Can you remember the last time you wrote just for fun?
If you can, you are one of the lucky ones. But if writing for
fun sounds like an oxymoron, the Palm Springs Writers Guild invites you to rediscover
the fun of writing by participating in National
Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November.
This annual and international event challenges writers of
all genres to silence their inner editors to reach one goal: to write 50,000
words in 30 days.
It can be the book you’ve always wanted to write. It can be
a new story in a genre you’ve always wanted to explore. It can be fun, silly,
serious, or anything in-between.
Most importantly, it can be bad.
NaNoWriMo isn’t meant to leave you with a perfectly polished
manuscript come December 1. Instead, it reignites your passion for writing by
giving you the freedom to take chances, and yes, to write badly – as long as you write.
Ideally, your writing habits will change for the better by December 1. You may
find that NaNoWriMo leaves you a more disciplined writer, unafraid of getting
less-than-perfect words on the page.
Here's a great link to network with other writers:
This November, let’s silence those pesky inner editors, write
our hearts out and rediscover the fun of the craft.
