November is National Novel Writing Month. The “official” challenge is to write the first draft of a new, 50,000-word novel in 30 days.
Rules, rules, rules… you can follow the official ones if you want to but I just want to have fun writing and encourage you to do the same. Dig up that work-in-progress, those random bits and pieces, or that dream you have been imagining.
Writer’s block is probably not the biggest problem facing someone willing to attempt to write an average of 1,666 words a day for a month. Getting things done might rank higher. You may have written a bunch of scraps and pieces, short stories, memoir, poems, flash, or essays. Maybe you started that novel and then just set it aside months or even years ago. The Green Mountain Writers Group (GMWG) invites you to gather together and support fellow writers with similar intention in a no-holds-barred effort to get ‘er done. Finish that natty!
Tuesday, November 1, 2022 marked the commencement of the 19th annual NaNoWriMo event. The GMWG is not an official affiliate but we encourage you to follow their blog for tips and advice.
