How to Write a Novel With Writer Mira Jacob

In this episode, we’ll talk to Mira Jacob, author of The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing , about how her romance took her ten years and what she learned in the process. We also hear from Lifehacker staff writers Nick Douglas, Patrick Allen, and Beth Skoreka about National Novel Writing Month (also known as NaNoWriMo), where authors commit to writing 50,000 words in 30 days. Beth completed NaNoWriMo 10 times; Patrick tries it for the first time this year. Nick is investigating why someone did this.
