I’m participating in NaNoWriMo this year. If you haven’t heard of NaNoWriMo before, here’s an explainer from their website:
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.
On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.
Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
I’ve gotten a lot of encouragement to just try writing every day for November from reading Stephen King’s On Writing. At this stage, I am happy to reach a goal of writing every day more than the 50,000 word goal.
Good luck to all the nano participants out there!
