“That’s the challenging part, getting it done,” Youngquist said.
However, she said the most important part of the month is not the goal, but “to encourage people to go ahead and write that book that you always wanted to do,” Youngquist said.
She encouraged any budding writers to visit the NaNoWriMo website to get support with their works. It offers a variety of information and message boards.
“If you get caught or stuck, there’s something there to prompt you,” Youngquist said.
