If you’re unfamiliar, NaNoWriMo is the National Novel Writing Month, which occurs in November. The basic goal is to write a new novel of 50k (or more) words in 30 days. They also do more flexible sessions (Camp NaNoWriMo) in April and July.
Although there have been criticisms of this process (writing “quantity over quality”) it has resulted in thousands of writers creating something tangible that they can edit and work with and- maybe? perhaps?- even eventually publish. Having 50k words written toward a novel is a wonderful feeling, and it inspires you to want to try harder, and do more.
I will, from time to time, write posts about my experiences with NaNoWriMo, including some tips and tricks that have served me well in the process.
