bookshelves: to-read
Read from July 05 to 06, 2015

I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

As I began the book, I realized I knew nothing about what is involved in writing a book to get published. I learned what NANOWRIMO was and became very intrigued . National Novel Writing Month happens each November where people sign up to take the challenge of writing 50,000 words in thirty days. Sounds easy , doesn't it? Maybe for some it is, but for others it is a challenge to begin your first thought onto paper.

The author takes us on her own journey during that month and shares with us the frustration and extreme pressure of trying to write a very specific word count. It does sound intimidating , but with the tools the author gives you in her book, you can achieve that goal.

She gives us a daily glimpse into her day as she tries to reach her daily goals. For some this could be a real challenge if you are juggling a full time job and have other comittments . For those who are thinking of doing this challenge, I encourage you to have the authors book as your go to reference material. In the book is valuable resources,along with her personal journey and encouraging scriptures to help motivate and empower you. This is a must read for all new authors who need inspiration and encouragement to pursue their dream of writing their first novel.
