If you’ve ever wanted to write a novel but never got around to it then you probably wonder how anyone could ever finish a novel. It’s time consuming and has a lot involved but you can do it. To start, you just have to write. No editing, no need to ask friends to read and review it. Just get down your “draft zero” first. Maybe you need something to help push you to write that novel you’ve wanted to for years. Well, how about writing it in 30 days?
Take a go at National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November, an annual writing event. 50,000 words in 30 days! But it’s not just November. There is also Camp NaNoWriMo for April, June, and August. Then there is the unofficial JulNoWriMo for July. So if November is just too busy for you there is always next spring or summer to give it a go. But I do encourage all you aspiring writers to give it a go 🙂
My first NaNoWriMo was in 2011 and I reached the 50k on day 29 for book two of The Gifted Series. This year I am just writing the beginnings of a new fantasy story on the side when I’m not working on Women’s Island edits. I’m not worried about making the 50K, but it is nice to work on another story a little bit everyday. Keeps my thoughts flowing as Women’s Island gets closer to publishing.
