So if you are one of the estimated 200,000 people taking part in the worldwide National Novel Writing Month send us your opening line and get the chance to win a cash prize or a copy of the latest book from renowned writing coach, Jurgen Wolff, “Your Writing Coach.”
And remember, there's no entry fee, you just need a send your first line to Jurgen from the website, http://www.NaNoWriMoContest.com
Some of you may be wondering why we are running a first line contest? "Just to encourage writers to get started," says Jurgen. "We don't have any official link with NaNoWriMo but I like to think we have the same spirit of playfulness. And it's going to be fun to read them all."
Good luck from me, writers! *Nora waves*
