NaNoWriMo is just around the corner! Would-be novelists, jump on board.
National Novel Writing Month is an annual event and nonprofit organisation that supports and motivates writers to start and finish a 50,000-word novel in November. Committing to this scary deadline pushes you to achieve way more than you would have imagined possible! TBH, who wouldn’t feel motivated by the kick-ass logo?
Sign up for free at www.nanowrimo.org. Then when the clock starts ticking on November 1st, earn milestone badges by logging your word count as you go.
NaNoWriMo offers loads of resources, including Pep Talks and forums where you can get inspired by like-minded people. If you are tackling NaNoWriMo with a group of friends, add them as your Writing Buddies.
This is the first year that I’ve participated and I’m excited! Luckily, NaNoWriMo coincides with the end of the uni semester. I’m planning to go away for a few days after submitting my final assignment to detox from the internet and get cracking on my novel. Expect some progress posts later in the month.
Feel free to add me as your Writing Buddy. I would love to see you online! Good luck!
