As we settle into October, many writers begin looking ahead to the joyful boot camp which is NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. The concept, if you’ve never heard of it before, is simple: you have one month to write 50,000 words of a new novel. The execution is, of course, rather more complex 🙂

Toronto-based writers thinking about taking on the NaNoWriMo challenge this year may want to invest in an Indie Coffee Passport. For just $25, you get a free espresso-based drink at up to 30 different local coffee shops. That’s one new writing locale a day for the duration of NaNoWriMo, and for a fraction of the cost of setting up at your local Starbucks – especially now that their prices have gone up.

(p.s. – you actually have until March 31, 2012 to use the Indie Coffee Passport, so if you wind up writing most of your NaNoNovel at the third place you try, you’ll still have plenty of time to visit the other cafes.)
