Anyone for NaNoWriMo 2013?

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.

 I have decided to sign up this year. I reckon why not? I can’t loose anything by not trying and I might just gain something by doing it!

Is anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this year?
Have you done it before? And if so, tell me all about it! Did you manage the 50k words?

nanoYou can sign up here.

  • you have an either brave or naive newbie right here, I was also thinking what the heck I got nothing to loose and I need the motivation and I work better under some sort of pressure.

    • Yea we might as well try 🙂

  • I’m doing it too! So far so good, but I’ve done it before and the first week is always easy. It’s the second and third weeks when you go “why am I doing this??” Just don’t skip a day and you’ll be fine. That’s my best piece of advice. Don’t. Skip. A. Day:)

    • Great advice! Going to try and stick to it 🙂

  • This is my 3rd year on Nanowrimo. The first year was pure craziness. My writing was all over the place. Last year was a total drain. By mid-month, I hated everything I wrote.

    Since I’ve been writing on and off all year, this year looks to be more promising. Nearly everything I’ve writing so far is decent. I have a clear goal and fleshed out characters. I think that there’s a possibility that this book WON’T need a complete rewrite like the others. Actually, last year’s book has gone through 3 thus far.

    I’m happy that you’re doing Nano! It’s so stressful yet so rewarding. Don’t hesitate to hit me up on twitter or where ever about any of the Nano craziness. Loved to be your writing buddy too. 🙂

    • Thanks so much for the support! It is great to hear about others experience, and to know I’m not alone 😀
