In this episode we talk to Mira Jacob, author of the novel The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing, about how her novel took her 10 years to write, and what she learned in the process. We also hear from Lifehacker staff writers Nick Douglas, Patrick Allen and Beth Skwarecki about National Novel Writing Month (also known as NaNoWriMo), wherein writers pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Beth has completed NaNoWriMo 10 times; Patrick is trying it this year for the first time. Nick investigates why anyone would do such a thing.
