The emails are coming in! The ideas are getting written down. Oh, the time of the year where everything seems to be rushing on a time clock. There isn’t much time left, but there’s so much to do.
And, gosh, it’s almost November already? It’s about time to write a novel on top of that!
November is a time for writers to join forces and write as much as they can. It’s the most motivating time of the year to get everything done. A deadline by determination and pride.
If you don’t know, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a writing competition where writers write a whole novel—50,000 words—in a month. That’s 1,667 intimidating words a day.
Getting a writing goal—motivation—is probably the best thing ever though. Through everyday life, it can be hard to make yourself sit down and write, especially if you have a second job. NaNoWriMo helps with that. Writers get a draft—no matter how much—on the page. It’s usually the month we seem to write the most at times.
This year, I’m doing something a little different. I’m giving weekly updates about my NaNoWriMo experience. I’ll try to give a motivating quote each week as well. You’re welcome to share your updates as well! Just something to relate to and hopefully push you forward. Hope you enjoy.
