Its that time of year again when I join in with a community of writers for National Novel Writing Month or NanoWrimo or as we usually just shorten it to: Nano.
Nano is a month long event where writers from around the country partispate in an personal effort to write a 50,000 word novella in a month. I’ve partispated for the most part for the last decade or so. I don’t always manage to write 50,000 words – life does dedicate some of that – but its fine enough to try.
Not everyone writes the same thing, or gets involved in the same way. Some people write original fiction, some write fanfic. Some write a series of short stories, while others write actual novel-length stories. The only goal is to get 50k worth of words, and to get people writing. Nano also has forums to get involved with, and often local team leaders who develop events where you can go and meet local Nano-ers.
They also have a donation run to create libraries and provide books for those who don’t have access to them.
This year I am working on several stories, trying to get some of my work in progress list done. I’ve got about 18 there now, and I’m sure that isn’t a complete list. (I need to review that one of these days).
Alright its been one week (completely, its now 12Am, so HAPPY ELECTION DAY PLEASE VOTE *AHEM*) My personal results are as follows:
