Before you begin, we wantto give you a super high five just for showing up!You may be wondering how you will go about writing a novel in a month. Isn't novelwriting just for famous authors? The answer, our friends, is no! Anyone can write anovel. You just have to have a few ideas, some paper, and a pen. It's as easy as that!Writing a novel is kind of like building a Lego spaceship from scratch: when the piecesare spread out on the ground, the job seems impossible. But if you work piece bypiece, before you know it, you've built an entire ship! By breaking any big job intosmaller jobs, you'll find that anything is possible.If you're still not sure, we've put together this nifty workbook to help you come upwith some novel ideas for November. You’ll get to create characters that are out of this world, build cities with the power of your imagination, and come up with a storythat is exciting enough to write about for 30 days straight! We have lots of reallycool activities to get you writing and keep you writing during NaNoWriMo.This November you will be doing a brave and wonderful thing: you'll be givingyourself a goal, and you'll be setting out to achieve it. And no matter how things turnout in the end—whether you finish your book or you don’t—it is jaw-droppingly coolthat you set out to write a novel in just one month. And for that, we salute you.Good luck, from all of us here at NaNoWriMo. May your writing adventure be agreat one!The NaNoWriMo Team  How ToWrite A Book
