Cheers to Horrible First Drafts

It’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), where thousands of established and aspiring writers sit down and wrangle the
plot bunnies that have bounced around their heads for the past year. I love NanoWriMo because the effort is about quantity, not quality. 1667 words a day for 30 days totals a whopping 50,000 words by December 1.
The goal of the month isn’t publication — it’s a finished product. People crank out novels, screenplays, memoirs and even fanfiction that may never be read by another living person. Regardless of the destiny of your writing, the process is absolutely worth the sense of accomplishment and the welcoming community of whiny writers available to you through the platform.
