What is NaNoWriMo?

NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month takes place annually in November. From the 01st-30th midnight, writers come together to create and lose themselves in their imagination and challenge themselves to reach 50,000 words (or more).

Yes, it can be a little masochistic depending on how one look at it and yes, you may encounter stumbling blocks along the way given that you have a day job thatโ€™s keeping you busy because you have bills to pay, but you donโ€™t need to reach 50,000 words on your first attempt. The main thing is to write and focus on completion, not perfection. Write that story youโ€™ve always wanted to start, but never got around to doing. The best part? Itโ€™s free to sign up and participate and you can win some really cool prizes.

Youโ€™re French? American? Alien? It doesnโ€™t matter. Any language can participate for it is their writing. Any genre is allowed including fanfiction, but youโ€™re not allowed to start on the body of the novel before November 01st.

Therefore, I am challenging you, dear writer, to participate in the National Novel Writing Month challenge this year. If you donโ€™t have a writing group or you have no one to push and encourage you during the month of November, La Petit Museโ€™s door is always open.

Visit the site to sign up and start writing on November 01st:

      1. Great! So happy to be on board with other writers. I will send out a little info/newsletter the last week of this month. I’m hoping it will be a little motivator for us all! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you wish to receive anything via email (I can also provide you mine) then just let me know!

  1. NaNoWriMo is just for people who have nothing better to do before the silly season. And it’s for those who do. Perhaps the only criteria is insanity. Good luck. ๐Ÿ™‚
