1st November marks the start of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in a competition where hundreds of thousands of authors race against the clock to complete a 50,000-word draft in just 30 days.
Although the project began in the United States, NaNoWriMo is an international nonprofit with participants around the world. You’re also welcome to write in the language you’re most comfortable with
Equal parts rewarding and challenging, NaNoWriMo is a perfect way to jump start your writing habit and complete your first draft. To help intrepid writers on this creative journey, author-based community Reedsy has announced Vancouver-based writer Shaelin Bishop and Jenn Gott, who’s author of a six-part epic fantasy series The Beacon Campaigns, and an open-ended superheroes series called Hopefuls, will be hosting host NaNoWriMo writing events every Thursday in November.
In their YouTube live streams, they will guide prospective writers through a series of writing sprints, giving you a boost of productivity and the opportunity to keep yourself accountable by sharing your progress with other writers.
