In November, writers around the world throw sanity to the winds and challenge themselves to write 50,000 words during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), sweating and stressing for 30 days. Surviving 30 Days of Literary Madness is a daybook of support, encouragement and the occasional kick in the pants to help make the stress more bearable and keep your eyes focused on your goal.
For each day of this mad sprint, there is a quote and essay designed to help keep you going at the keyboard, along with other pieces about preparation and the novelizing hangover that comes in December. There are also pages for those other moments, when you've fallen slightly behind — or you realize this may not be a year you cross the finish line. No matter how your November novel experience is going, this book will be a companion for each day.

About the Author
As a child, Caro Kinkead was told Dr. Seuss’ job was “writing books,” and decided that was her goal when she grew up – along with being a ballerina and an archeologist and about a dozen other things. A fear of snakes signaled the end of her ambition to find the next Tutankamun’s tomb, the dancing (and acting) didn’t quite pan out, but the love of writing remained, allowing her to enjoy those varied careers and more in her imagination.
Born and raised in Houston, TX, Caro grew up in a family of readers, where she developed a love of science fiction and fantasy thanks to her father, and old movies and the art of costuming from her mother. These days, she and her husband share a home in the Los Angeles area with their cat, the Mighty Mu-Mu, a sizeable book collection, and more yarn than she’d care to admit to.
