If you’ve ever considered joining National Novel Writing Month, but you haven’t committed, listen to this podcast from The Creative Penn.
The challenge: Write 50,000 words in the month of November.
The real goal: An exploration in time management, in the writing process, and in the changes that come with community, accountability, goals, and motivation. For solitary writers, it’s a way to experience a whole new way of writing.
You may hit that 50,000 mark, or you may miss. But more importantly, you may find new ways to write, new methods to keep yourself accountable, and new community members to join you in the process. And who knows? Maybe you’ll end up with the first draft of a your next novel.
Find your inspiration at The Creative Penn Podcast: Write a Novel In a Month – NaNoWriMo.
This year I’m skipping NaNoWriMo. I’m in full book launch mode, and my November project plan is stuffed with tasks to launch my first book (coming January 2020.)
But maybe I’ll see you at the NaNoWriMo boards in November 2020!
