NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month is a yearly challenge writers of all types and ages try to complete. It starts with writing a story of 50,000 words (or more) in the month of November. Anyone who completes the challenge is an official winner! Want to take the challenge?

Write or Die – This is a great way to get motivated to write. Because if you don’t, you die. Well. . . not really. Your eardrums just burst from painful sounds booming through your laptop’s speakers. But why would you as a writer want to subject yourself to that? Because it motivates you to write. (There are different versions for your phone, and a full version you can buy. However, you can just use the ‘Try It’ version for free and for as many times as you want.)
