N is for NaNoWriMo

I was supposed too be telling you all how my Camp NaNo novel was going, but I wasn't able to get to it because of health issues. I am hoping to start again in the next round, which I believe is in June. So I've been using this A to Z to identify and answer questions and problems that plotting has brought to my attention.

NaNoWriMo is an amazing event held in November where you attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. That's 1667 words every day. It is a very interesting organization and you can read the history here. It is worth the read if you have a few minutes.

My favorite part is the camaraderie. I have met some of the most amazing people and they have been unbelievably supportive. I have never made it across the NaNo finish line, but plan to keep trying.

Have you participated in NaNoWriMo? Do you like extreme challenges to get you moving? Or do you work better at your own pace? Please leave a comment and don't forget to let me know where you came from so I can follow you back.


  1. I needed NaNoWriMo to get me over the hurdle of finishing the first Champion novel. Once I did that, I slowed down to my own pace. However . . . I am considering it for June. :)

  2. November is my most productive month because of NaNo, followed closely by April and June because of CampNaNo. Deadlines and the community of WriMos really helps me stay motivated and get work done. I've met so many amazing local writers because of it too.

    1. Yes, I love the community of WrIMos. So many amazing, caring and helpful people.
