NaNoWriMo 2016


A helpful calendar that escaspulates all the emtions felt during NaNo


Another November is upon us and with it comes NaNoWriMo. For those of you not in the know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and the premise of the challenge is to hammer out 50,000 words in 30 Days. It is chaos and, at times, takes some hard work and elbow grease to stay on task, but it's a good time.

This is my sixth year participating and hopefully my fourth year winning. Currentlty I am ahead of the game and sitting at 3,000 words.

As always, Chuck Wendig has some pretty spot on advice for NaNo and also some good life advice (funny how those two tend to go hand in hand). Check them out from the links below. :)
