National Novel Writing Month Write-in

  • This location is shown only to members

As many of you know, November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The premise is that if you write about 1700 words a day for 30 days, at the end of the month you will have written the equivalent of a 50,000 word novel. Impossible you say? I participated last year and finished the first draft of my novel. True, all 50,000 words were not final words, but it was a great way to finish a sucky first draft. This November, I plan to finish the final draft of the novel I started and get it ready to publish by January.

In honor of NaNoWriMo, I am scheduling one-hour writing only Meetups every Sunday in November. Even if you're not writing a novel, I encourage you to write 1700 words a day of ANYTHING.

Here's the link for the official NaNoWriMo website: http://nanowrimo.org/ It helps you to: 

Track your progress
Get pep talks and support from other writers (many well-known)
Let you know about group writing events in your area
And, of course, write your novel (or whatever you're working on).

Happy writing!

      Hi Megan,
      No, you do not have to be doing NaNoWriMo. Anyone who wants to write for an hour with other folks in the group is welcome!

      Case in point: I'm not writing for NaNoWriMo this year, as I'm already Kickstarting a novel written for my first NaNoWriMo, but I'll be available for plotting and writing advice. :) Oct 5
