The other day I wrote about why I love NaNo and yesterday I wrote about different ways to go about it. If you’re at all thinking about participating this year, you have only a day or so left to register.
If you do sign up, please let me know so I can encourage you. Since I have ‘won’ several times in the past, I have a lot of work to do on those books already, so won’t be joining this year. Perhaps I will in a year or two.
You may have excuses not to try NaNoWriMo. Maybe November is a busy work month, being close to the holidays. Maybe you have year-end projects in a different arena of your life you need to finish. Maybe you don’t think you have the time to ‘waste’ on writing.
Whatever your excuse, I urge you to give it a try. You only have a few days to get registered (sign up, choose a user name, etc) before the first of November. You can do that here: http://nanowrimo.org/
For writers unfamiliar with National Novel Writing Month or (NaNo for short), it has become a huge support group with participants from all over the world who try to meet the challenge to write their novels. Now a nonprofit, the organization still encourages writers to write a novel-at least 50,000 words of one-in one month. The challenge starts on the first of November, which means this year’s event is just around the corner.
