nanowrimo What is nanowrimo, you may well ask. I was in my library last week and saw that they had a writers meeting every Monday evening through out the month of November, I attended, having not any idea what the itinerary or format was. But as I have always been interested in writing I thought that I would go.
After sitting there with one other person for a while, he worked at the library and had started doing some writing before, in comes another person. Eventually our fearless leader appeared somewhat late, well half and hour late. She did begin to explain why we were all meeting through out the month of November. Eventually there were seven people there including myself. One other person was in the same position as me not having a clue as to what it was about, but he was ahead of me because he had started a novel.
Well it seems that during the month of November one aims to write 50,000 words, that is an average of 1,667 words per day. Now since I attended on the 5th, the first meeting had been scheduled for the 29th October, but of course Hurricane Sandy cancelled that meeting out, I was already behind if I wanted to join in.
National Novel Writing Month is a world wide event. It seems that you can sign up in your region or any where in the world chat or be encouraged to write.
