This post is part of a new recurring element on Comparative Geeks, Geek 501. The idea being, we have Master’s degrees, so we wouldn’t do Geek 101, but 501. Apparently. Anyway, this post was written by me to introduce and discuss National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriMo, which I and thousands of others are currently participating in! Read on!
You may have heard of it. You may have participated in it. You may be wondering what the heck I am talking about. NaNoWriMo.
National Novel Writing Month. Well, it’s an international thing, and novel ends up being taken pretty loosely… but it is definitely a writing month. Happening in November every year, NaNoWriMo is a way to get started on writing. Useful for someone who does a lot of writing, or for someone just getting into writing, or someone who always wanted to write… Basically, it’s a great idea.
This is just a bit of an explanation of NaNoWriMo, so that if you, or someone you know if doing NaNoWriMo you know what’s going on. And, if you’re considering doing NaNoWriMo yourself… it’s a little late to get going, but early enough in the month if you put a lot of time in, you could do it! And of course, some of my thoughts as someone who’s done NaNoWriMo, and is doing it this year.
