Keyboard Ready? NaNoWriMo Is coming!

Keyboard Ready? NaNoWriMo Is coming!

October 20, 2020

National Novel Writing Month, affectionately known as NaNoWriMo, is fast approaching. Are you up for the challenge? For the entire month of November, all types of writers challenge themselves to write 50,000 words in 30 days.

For the past seven years, I have participated; furiously tapping away every day with determination to cross that finish line, and this year will be no different. I have found it a great exercise in routine and commitment, but also an opportunity to have fun as I write about my characters and their escapades!

Apart from my husband, my biggest source of encouragement is MCPL’s Story Center. Their team is incredible, and I’ve already signed up for their virtual support of my NaNo prep! I can’t wait to see their kick-off video on November 1!

Here are a few of my favorite books that I use to plan my challenge days:

Remember to check out The Story Center and keep an eye out for all NaNoWriMo programs. And, friends, whether you’re a “plotter” or a “pantser,” I’ll see you at the finish line!
