It’s that time once again guys, NaNoWriMo! This is also known as Nation Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is a nonprofit organization where the site allows you to write a novel of your very own. The main goal is to write 50,000 words, but if you’re interested write however much you’d like! There’s no shaming in someone’s writing.
NaNoWriMo begins on November 1st until November 30th at 11:59 PM. The site allows you to write and edit, while earning participation and writing badges. There are only a few easy steps of filling out your profile and you’re there.
I greatly encourage you to join this non profit organization. This is where my writing journey actually began, and I’ve loved it ever since! Getting to know the works of how writing a novel would be like was a great time for me. When I did this for my English 12 class, we only had to do 5,000 words and at the end of the month I finished with about 12,000. I couldn’t have been more thankful for an opportunity such as that. Not only did it lighten what writing is like, but it also introduced me into what is now my job. So even if you don’t think you can write 50,000 words or even 5,000, just take your first steps and do whatever’s comfortable for yourself.
To sign up and for more information, I will be leaving a link directly to NaNoWriMo’s website down below. Best of luck to you all!!
