On October 16, 2012, at 3:00 pm Eastern Time, The #SciFiChat on Twitter will discuss the topic Speculative Fiction NaNoWriMo.
National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm and perseverance over painstaking craft, NaNoWriMo is a novel-writing program for everyone who has thought fleetingly about writing a novel but has been scared away by the time and effort involved.
#SciFiChat this week will explore NaNoWriMo from the point of view of speculative fiction authors and readers.
There will be a social hour before #SciFiChat, beginning at 2:00 pm Eastern Time.
The moderator of #SciFiChat is @DavidRozansky. To monitor or participate in #SciFiChat, sign in to the Twitterchat tool of your choice and use the hashtag #SciFiChat. Please introduce yourself to the chatters.
