Are YOU taking part in NANOWRIMO this year?
For the uneducated out there, NaNoWriMo
is short for National Novel Writing Month. It's November- you begin after midnight on Halloween and type or scribble madly until midnight on the 30th, upload the typed manuscript for word count verification, and if it's over 49,999 words, you've won!
What you do next with said 50,000+ is up to you.
But no matter how busy you are, it's worth a shot. I didn't finish it my first year, and I LOVE the manuscript that I came up with. It's full of ideas, it's waiting to be reworked, and I really think it has a
chance of being something great. I won in 2007, and have had a couple other positive experiences from it..
If you ARE registered with NaNo, feel free to friend me!
I've also got another forum that I belong to that's a bunch of writers... There's usually between six and seven who attack NANOWRIMO with a vengeance each year. So by putting our novels up together in the forum for mutual support... It's a really powerful feeling of fun and camaraderie.
The forum's here:
Feel free to move this thread to the most appropriate category, but I think this is a major Nerdfighteria happening that a lot of members take part in.
