For several years I have been fascinated by NanoWriMo. My interest started when a friend mentioned that she participates in it.
I will give you the short version of it. Writers and aspiring writers spend the month of November trying to write a novel . . . or at least 50,000 words of a novel. Apparently 50,000 words is the approximate word count for The Great Gatsby. Pretty inspiring!
When you sign up online, you have access to all kinds of resources and inspiration. You can earn badges. It even says you can earn prizes, but I don’t know what kind of prizes. It appears that the prize involves a discount on a writing app? Maybe I am missing something here. There are even writing events to go to in different areas of the country.
Although you can certainly prep ideas and such before November, you are not supposed to write anything until 12:01 am on November 1, 2018.
While I’m not sure I’m going to write the next hottest novel, I do like the idea that I have a deadline to get SOMETHING done!
The journey of 50,000 words begins with signing up for NanoWriMo!
Peace, Love & Word Count!
