For those who haven’t heard of it, NaNoWriMo challenges Writers to write 50,000 words by the end of the month. One thing that I like is that they emphasize that it doesn’t have to be a perfect 50,000-word novel, but you just have to reach that goal. It’s good for those people, like me, who are constantly going back and revising while writing. They spend so much time editing and criticizing their work that they never are able to write a novel, or even a short story.
After you have finished, you are able to upload your novel to the site between November 25 to November 30. You never know. You might win the chance to get your novel published.
The site is great. You are able to connect with other users, and you can be each other’s support during the month. If you want your first supporter, here is the link to my NaNoWriMo profile: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/517846
I am definitely up for the challenge. I have started writing a non-fiction book, but I am really interested in writing a creative fiction book that is loosely based on my life. One of the rules is that it has to be a new piece, so I am thinking of writing the fictional book.
This will be my first NaNoWrMo challenge, so wish me luck!
