There are 12 days and counting until National Novel Writing Month begins. The countdown to the big day is sometimes filled with anxiety and worry, but as you may have guessed, we believe in “Fun Not Fear.” Sure, the thought of writing 50k in 30 days in daunting, but we’ve learned that the best writing happens when we’re enjoying ourselves and surrounded by people who are there to support and encourage us. Between now and November 30th, we’re building a space where WriMos can find that support and encouragement. Through weekly check-ins (posted every Friday), you’ll have the chance to pop in and chat about your successes and challenges, and to connect with others who have decided to take the NaNo challenge.
So go ahead — grab a drink (there’s a full bar just over to the side there), gather ‘round, and introduce yourselves. Is this your first time tackling NaNo? Any ideas for what you’ll work on next month? Any tips you’d like to share about plotting, planning, or other NaNo prep you’re currently doing?
