“The world needs your novel.” That’s the tagline of National Novel Writing Month, the nonprofit literary phenomenon run by Grant Faulkner. NaNoWriMo now boasts approximately 400,000 participants who pledge to write a full novel in a month (they each write their own book—made up of at least 50,000 words—each November). Some highly successful works have come out of the initiative, including Sara Gruen’s “Water for Elephants” and Rainbow Rowell’s “Fangirl.” Faulkner appears in person with Brooke Warner, publisher of She Writes Press, president of Warner Coaching Inc., and author of “Green-Light Your Book,” to talk about how to turn inspiration into a tangible product. This session is a must-see for anyone who believes they have a book in them.
