There’s that special chill in the air, your fantasy team is probably already hopeless, and you feel a certain itch to create something new. That can only mean one thing: It’s time for National Novel Writing Month!
Every year, thousands of writers join in the month-long campaign to write a novel (50,000 words) in one month, in a collective burst of creativity that probably registers huge on the Universe’s Richter Scale of Awesome.
If you’re cracking your knuckles, readying to dive back into the NaNo ring, or if you’re a n00b to the whole crazy rigamarole, we want to help fuel your quest for 50K! So we’re bringing back our newsletter, Carpool Lane, a daily offering of inspiration, quotes on writing, resources, and of course .gifs!
Want some examples of the daily goodness we’ll be spittin’ your way? Try this (wam!) or this (pow!) or one of these (kablam!).
Don’t go into the NaNo circus without a shot of creative adrenaline — sign up now!
To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.
