Yeah I almost forgot this.
What is Nanowrimo?
Well, until this year I didn’t know either so don’t feel bad. It’s the most insane craze driven mad attempt at producing a 50,000 novel in one month.
One month, millions of writers and you all trying to do a novel in a month. 50,000 words and you win! YEAH! A novel!
Wait..what do you win?
Like I said, it’s nuts. You do get to feel proud of yourself for doing it. You get the personal reward of a first draft. Other than that you might get a % off coupon for a writing program that you probably already own.
So why do it? For me, it’s awesome at doing drafts. I used the camp version to get my first draft done. I used another camp one to work on it and I’m using Nanowrimo in Nov. to get through some more of my draft.
That does make me a bit of a rebel because I’m not doing a first draft but I’m doing it anyway.
Nanowrimo… Nov… this year… well last year too and next year as well… Yes Nanowrimo! The 24/7 month of nutty writers pulling out hair, banging their heads against walls and drinking enough caffeine to keep the coffee biz going for years. 🙂
Here are a few links about how mad nuts and crazed it really is like.

oh and here is the link to Nanowrimo!
