NaNoWriMo 2015: Time to Write A(nother) Novel!

NaNo-2015-Participant-Banner

It’s almost November and that means NaNoWriMo is coming! What is NaNoWriMo? For those who don’t know…

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. 

On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel. [NaNoWriMo]

I’ve already participated in NaNoWriMo twice in 2014 (under a pseudonym) and succeeded both times. I’m totally capable of writing 1667+ words per day (I do that already) and I love the focus, motivation, and community that NaNoWriMo provides.

[Side note: I understand that not everyone likes the idea of writing 50,000 words in a month, but just like most things what might not work for one person can be perfect for others. So nay-sayers and party-poopers, please don’t snark at me or rain on my writing parade.]

Are you signed up and wanna be my NaNoWriMo friend (or just want to be nosy and see how I’m doing ;P)? You can find me here: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/desiree-o

If you want to participate, here are some links that may be of interest including some tips to help you prep, keep going, and succeed:

You can also grab yourself a NaNoWriMo 2015 calendar at Margie’s 2015 NaNoWriMo Calendars to help keep you on track (examples below — grab the full-size calendars at the link).

Or you could go with the one I’ll be using (it’s not necessarily for 2015, but I like the motivational message)…
