Chris Baty, "No Plot? No Problem!"

This review is going out to all you NaNoWriMo writers this year!  I'm not participating, but I'm with you in spirit, cheering from the sidelines!  And a special note just for the NaNoWriMo writers: yes, you should buy this book, now GET BACK TO WRITING.

Now, for the rest of the world!  NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, in which you sign up to be part of a crazy madcap race to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.  This works out to approximately 1,600 words per day.  It sounds implausible, impossible, even.  But it is not, and if participating in NaNoWriMo teaches you anything, it is that you are capable of far more than you would ever have thought possible.
