November Is Aspiring Authors Month!

All month long we will be celebrating Aspiring Authors on the RT Daily Blog. Every day we will have helpful hints about writing and the many paths to publication. You will get writing advice from authors sharing their tips and success stories, hear from industry insiders and take writing mini-challenges.

Our Aspiring Author focus is inspired by National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWrMo. This month thousands of writers around the world, from beginners to experts, will take the annual challenge and attempt to write 175 pages or 50,000 words, during the month of November. You can find out more about NaNoWriMo at their website. And in the meantime, we will be here to help inspire you all month long.

So if you are a published author, aspiring writer, or just someone interested in the inner workings of how a book is put together, join us all month for tips, videos, interviews, writing challenges and of course, round two of the Kensington/RT Writing With the Stars contest — it's all part of our featured Aspiring Authors coverage in November on the RT Daily Blog.

To easily follow all of the aspiring author action keep an eye on this blog post. We will be updating it everytime we post a related blog, video or article during November!
