NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writer’s Month is an event held every November and goes on the entire month. The goal is to help writers reach the goal of their choice in one month‘s time. The default goal is a 50,000 word novel. Writers can choose to begin a new novel or work on the novel they’ve already begun. Writers can also choose to write a book of poetry, a group of short stories, or whatever else they want. There’s no real limit to what can be written as long as it’s completed by the end of November.
This year, I was going to use this event to help me finish Vice’s part of the story in Golden Knave, but that’s not going to happen. Instead, I’m finishing up the final draft for The Inbetween. I plan to have it published in December.
This is Day One of the event, and I’ve already written 4,026 words!! 🙂 I’m confident I’ll surpass the site goal of 50,000 words and hit my personal goal of 60,000 before the end of the month. If I hit it in time, I may reach for 75,000 words. We’ll see how it goes.
WRITERS!!! I encourage you to join this event!! It’s free, and there are tons of resources to help you reach your goal, even for newbies. Writing buddies are the best for support and encouragement, and this year, we’re using Discord to help with virtual write-ins and get-togethers!! Join me on NaNoWriMo!!
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
