NaNoWriMo means “write a novel in November”

NaNoWriMo logoYes, you heard that right. Write a novel in November.

NaNoWriMo is: National (presumably it refers to the U.S. but they welcome everyone) Novel Writing Month.

Starting Nov. 1, you write and write and write every day… until you’ve reached 50,000 words by Nov. 30. Simple! Well…

To help you in your endeavour, the NaNoWriMo website offers forums, blogs, tips, ideas and a word counter. (You scramble your writing and upload it to the website where it is counted and promptly deleted.) Your word count then goes into the pool for your city. Or just for yourself.

Obviously, this is something we can “just do ourselves, anyway,” right?

But… do we? No. If life was that simple, there wouldn’t be Weight Watchers. Or spin classes.

Or Chocoholics Anonymous. (Note to self: Start Chocoholics Anonymous.)
See? The ideas are flowing already and it’s not even November yet!

Sign up for NaNoWriMo and get inspired. Do it now. Before November. Because in November you’ll be, like, “Oh, it’s already started — I’m behind… I can’t possibly catch up… I’ll do it next year.”

Just like you said when you were trying to kick your chocolate habit. Uh-huh. Here’s the link again: NaNoWriMo.

"This tall" sign

By the way, there’s a kids’ forum as well so no excuses if you’re not “this tall.”

  1. Hi, I really liked reading your blog. My son is 10 with autism and it’s so nice to know that others out there care about me, even if I don’t know you. It has been a stressful thing for our family, though, not finding the joy like you do, so I was inspired by you finding joy on this path. Thanks for cheering me up.~Jeni

  2. Wow, these posters are excellent! I love the 2nd one and although the 3rd one is a bit reminiscent of the one that was released a few weeks ago, it’s a lot better in terms of the pose and the colours.Very impressed.I truly beleive that the key to a films anticipation is how well the posters are done.
