how’s your WriMo?
November 12, 2015
Are you on track toward 50,000 words? It’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and you can almost hear the keyboards clicking and the pens scratching.
On Sunday (November 15) in San Francisco, writers who have raised some dough to support NaNoWriMo will gather for The Night of Writing Dangerously — a mid-November extravaganza of food, drink, and lots and lots of noveling.
Over at Red Wheelbarrow Writers, Juicy Fruit Don’t Grow On Trees, a group-write novel, is racking up the words at the rate of a chapter a day.
There are write-ins going on at libraries, student unions, coffee shops and other venues near you. To find some inspiration, check out the list of regional NaNoWriMo groups or go to the NaNoWriMo Pep Talks page to see encouragement from authors from 2015 and previous years. There are also live-streaming virtual write-ins and lots of other spirited visual aids on YouTube at the Office of Letters and Light (the geniuses behind NaNoWriMo).
Okay. That’s enough distraction. Get back to the writing.
