Who?: Thousands of people from all over the world.
What?: National Novel Writing Month
Where?: At coffee shops, writing events, libraries, or from the comfort of your own home.
When?: The entire month of November.
How?: By writing an average of 1,667 words per day for 30 days, at the end you will have 50,000 words, or in other words, a novel.
Why?: NaNoWriMo is a fantastic way to motivate yourself to actually sit down and write that novel you've been dreaming about!
National Novel Writing Month starts with heading to NaNoWriMo.org, signing up and committing to writing 50,000 words in the month of November (or your own unique writing goal). To help you achieve this amazing goal is an online word count tracker, numerous tips and tricks of the trade, a forum to post questions, informative and entertaining videos, and most importantly, links to your local NaNoWriMo group. These local NaNo groups host events and contests, some online and some in person, to give you even more personal support.
Only one of the five novels I've written was not written during NaNoWriMo! This year I'm poised and prepared (Hahaha, just kidding. Really, I'm crazy disorganized and scrambling as usual.) to write a detective thriller. So wish me luck, and I wish everyone who takes on the NaNoWriMo challenge this year the best of luck too!!!
I Write, I Edit, I Write Again. Witness!
We're Making Better Words, All of Them, Better Words.
I Write to Burn Off the Crazy.
A Good Day Writing is a Day Writing.
It Puts the Words on the Page or it Gets the Hose Again.
Just Keep Writing, Just Keep Writing; Writing, Writing, Writing...
