National Novel Writing Month is not only about writing novels. This is a month solely dedicated to the act of writing. Even if you have no intention of “doing” NaNoWriMo, it can’t hurt to think about what you might like to write.

- What is the central theme?
- Who are the characters, their gender, their culture?
- Will you “pants it” through the plot or create an outline?
