Words. Written and Waiting.
5 New Ways to Approach NaNoWriMo
October flew by- No wait, I swore I wouldn’t start another blog post with how time seems to be screeching past like a runaway locomotive.
So anyways, now that it’s almost November you know what that means! NaNoWriMo! For those of you who don’t know what that is, its National Novel Writing Month, all mashed up. It’s a friendly writerly competition that takes place every November and lasts all month.
The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days! Which works out to 1,666.67 words per day. Some of you might remember that I participated in NaNo last year. You may or may not remember I fell short (less than half of my goal in word count), but lessons were learned and fun was had.
Now I’m back at it with a new plan of attack! Here are 5 things I’ll be doing this year so I can approach my failures from last year and adapt them to help me smash my goals this year.
A book is Cooking
Where I write about writing.
Flashes of Inspiration
Where I share the fiction.
Where I talk about books. A lot.
