Usually I’m well aware of the start of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) held every year in November. I can often count on a number of writer friends asking if I’m going to be participating again this year. Then there’s the inevitable late October panic as I try and figure out just what I will write during NaNoWriMo and what will I not do to reach my 1,666 daily word goal.
This year, however, things were pretty quiet and I’m none of my writer friends is doing NaNo and neither am I. Oh, I’m still writing, but between my work writing, freelance assignments and the Achdus Club series there is no way I could imagine taking on another project.
If you are participating in NaNo – You go! It’s an awesome way to kickstart your work, and no worries if you don’t reach your goal. Just the exercise of writing consistently will help you grow as a writer.
I’ve pulled together a few of my old blog posts on NaNo filled with tips, tricks and my thoughts on the whole process. Enjoy!
