NaNoWriMo Anybody?

Postby Rosedarling » Sat Aug 27, 2016 7:42 pm

For those of you unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, This is a group of writers who come together to challenge their writing skills and produce a 50,000 word novel during the entire month of November. A daunting task but it is also a lot of fun when you have fellow writers sharing the experience. There are several people in this forum who have joined in before so if you have questions, just ask.

I have participated 2 years. Once pretty successful and once I totally bombed. But I'd like to try again this year and was wondering if anyone wanted to join me. September is a preparation month for NaNoWriMo. If you're interested check out the website.

I hope to hear from you.

There is no Miss Zarves. There is no nineteenth story. Sorry.

"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

I participated nine years and was an ML (for Kansas::Elsewhere) for three, but I've decided not to participate this year for various reasons, mostly health-related.

I pulled out last year (and forgot to save the story I had half-written, so lost it forever). I might give Nano another shot this year, if only to help me get text onto the page for the Family History. I can always edit and put in photographs later. I am losing my enthusiasm for finishing the History and I really want to wrap it up this year. Maybe Nano will be the way to accomplish that.

BTW, just noticed that today is your 8th anniversary of joining the WD forum, PLS. Doesn't time fly?
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

I'm happy to see the discussion about this. It's encouraging to see the maybes. I hope some newbies will join in too.

Two and a half years ago I stopped writing altogether for a job that occupied all my time. During the past few months I had all the time in the world but came up with nothing. My nano experience kept me motivated to write everyday. Writing with a group made it fun and I looked forward to it. I brought the subject up because I'm going back to work and I don't want to lose the writing part of my life again. I also want to get back in touch with my fellow forumites who have supported me over the years.

Thanks for the responses. Anyone else?

Sounds interesting. What is the purpose of it? Publication? Critiques? Getting read?

What does "NaNoWriMo" mean, anyway? It's always sounded like baby-talk to me. I would like to know what it stands for. :)

I'll definitely join this year! I'm slowly making progress on a story right now so this may be the nudge I need to actually get it all out of my head and onto paper.
