Julie Luek chronicles the many opportunities to binge write during the dull cold month of November:
At Newbie Writers, we are big fans of NaNoWriMo. They just need to send me that logo coffee mug I bought three weeks ago. But other than that, I love the project and recommend it to my clients if they need to kick start their novel efforts.
Why has this project become so popular?
- It’s fun
- It’s commercial free
- There is no real prize except satisfaction
- It’s far less a contest and far more a community, all of us striving for the same goal.
If you are tired of a zero sum game and a zero sum world, NaNoWriMo is a positive example of how a project expands to accommodate every writer who wants to play.
Check it out. You can sign up right now and start receiving encouraging missives
from the NaNo team.
Even if you don’t “win” at 50,000 words by November 30th (with a turkey sandwich beside you), the rush is worth the try.
