I know, I know–you’re trying to write and you want some info. Well this week it’s all about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which happens to start at 12:00 am, midnight, on November 1st. What’s all this now?
NaNoWriMo is a website that, for the month of November, you may track your progress towards a 50,000 word goal on your next noveling project! Sounds fun, right? This means the target for daily writing is 1,667 words. Does it sound like you might need help? Good thing there’s forums so you can talk with other NaNo writers as well as “writing buddies” so you can be each others’ accountibili-buddies!
There are some rules, however, like having to verify your word count in order to get the goodies between November 25th and November 30th. You can write over 50,000 and win, but under does not qualify. You should be writing on a singular project, although NaNo Rebels do exist that work on several projects and combine their word counts to reach the 50,000 word requirement. Anything written before midnight on November 1st should not be counted toward your overall word count. There are many more that have cropped up in response to questions by participants, but these are the most basic of rules.
Sign up is free over on the NaNo website, so feel free to join today and get your writing on come November 1st! I’ve been a member for 4 years now, working on my fifth NaNo. Want to be writing buddies? The link to my personal profile will be down below!
