10-second review: Two programs that break writing a novel into manageable parts.
Title: “Writing Applications Could Help You Reach Your NaNoWriMo Goals.” Susan Johnston. The Writer (November 2009), 10, 12.
Summary: NaNoWriMo is an abbreviation for writing a novel in thirty days. It takes place in November The abbreviation stands for National Novel Writing Month. Two of the suggested Web sites to aid in writing a novel are Write or Die (http://writeordie.drwicked.com/ ) and Blovel Spot (www.blovelspot.com).
Write or Die lets you set a word or time goal and you have to write or it starts to delete characters if you stop writing for too long a period. Blovel Spot (Blognovel) lets you write blog-like blogs, one chapter a blog. They are published online and people can read them and respond to your work in progress.
Comment: Both Web sites force you to write. So get up and write. RayS.
