AND THEY’RE ALL LIKELY BUNDLES OF SILLY NONSENSE.
BUT I DID IT.
I WON NANOWRIMO THIS YEAR.
For those of you unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is every November. You don’t have to pay or even sign up with the official Nanowrimo site to participate- if you write over 50,000 words in a month, then boom, you did it! But signing up with the site (which is entirely free) allows you to track your progress, find writing buddies, get pep talks emailed to you, and learn about writing events in your area. I never took advantage of the writing events (I should have), but the pep talks were great, and knowing there was a community of people all doing the same crazy thing this month really helped me keep going. If you like writing, or want to get back into it (like I did), I highly recommend this month of silliness.
