NaNoWriMo 2009

by John Wilker in Writing

It’s almost November! Which means it’s almost National Novel Writing Month! (NaNoWriMo)

I’ve participated the last 2 years. I’ve never completed, and only once came to and slightly past the halfway mark (Which is about where that store is still at, IIRC).

I’ll be trying again this year, not that I have a whole lot of time, but it’s just too much fun!

If you’re a writer, a budding writer, a wannabe writer, or just someone who likes to put words to page, give it a shot, it’s a great time, you’re not alone, and if there’s a chance you can knock out “your novel” this could be it.

You’ll get tons of support from all over the place, and there’s plenty of local meetups to help get you thru the month.

Go on! Give it a shot!

    You might try this:
    Write every day 2000 words. That way you only have to write 25 days, which means that you don't fall back if you can't write some days. Also if you start with daily writing it's harder to make excuses about not writing.

      That's a good idea. Early on last year (Or the year before) I did that. Starting really strong to build up a cushion. Great advice!

      My cushion ended up not being big enough, but the idea is sound :)
