In case you haven’t heard of it, Nanowrimo is an online and in-home event, where you try to write an entire novel, or at least 50,000 words of it, in the month of November. The website can be found HERE.
I’ve participated the last three years, but I’ve only been successful one time, completing the challenge of 50,000 words in 30 days. Not only is the event awesome for writers, but there’s a great writing community out there that band together and write.
I’d like to challenge all of you, including myself, to try this event and take it seriously this year. A lot of good can come from this, whether it be a complete novel, writing buddies, or great writing habits.
Chuck Wendig, novelist and screenwriter, has compiled an awesome to-do list if you’re interesting in participating, if you’re so inclined. You can find that HERE.
Alas, add me on Nanowrimo if you are participating. My username is Carniehands. Yep. That’s right. Carniehands.
Take this time to start thinking about what you want to write, who your protagonist is, and look up local writing ground in your area. You can do this. I can do this. We can do this.
