Some Get It, Some Don't

Here's a snarky anti-Nano article from a snob at Salon who doesn't get it, and here's a well-reasoned response from an editor at Orbit Books, who does.

Bottom line, while we all hope our NaNo project gets picked up by a major editing house and sells a bazillion copies, the main reasons we do NaNoWriMo are:

  1. It's fun.
  2. It helps improve your writing.
  3. You meet some very nice people through the forums and elsewhere online. 
  4. It forces you to get off your butt and give writing a novel a shot.
  5. It helps you learn what it feels like to write on a regular basis. And,
  6. It's fun.
That's good enough for me. What do you think?
