People around the world use the National Novel Writing Month to provide the motivation to finally write that novel, strike the item off the bucket list. Some people use it to find out if they can do it, to find out if they’ve got what it takes to make a go as a professional writer.

In 2015, we showed how to use NaNoWriMo to build the discipline to launch a career as a professional novelist. Since then, The Every Day Novelist has explored territory from autodiacticism to zoology, all in the name of helping you navigate life’s difficulties while improving your craft, business acumen, writerly discipline, and aesthetic depth. We’ve seen dozens of listeners move from hobbyists to established professional, and hundreds more move from “aspiring writer” to actually living the writing life.

Everyone has a story to tell, and almost everyone thinks they’ve got a good novel in them. A few of us actually put the work in to find out. Join us!
