An epidemic is going around called NaNoWriMo Fever. If you are a writer, it is highly contagious so be very careful or you may catch it. I've come close, but have managed to escape.
Seriously, even though my schedule doesn't allow for me to participate in the National Novel Writing Month frenzy, I wanted to give aid and comfort to those who are writing a novel in one month.
Take a look at this fun video for inspiration.
And if that didn't do it for you try this one.
Now, even if you haven't caught NaNoWriMo fever, the best writing tip I could give today (or any day for that matter) is to just . . . write!!! You may not use every word in your finished product, but you'll be able to mine some gems out of your ramblings that may surprise you and head you in a direction you never dream of before.
