Alright, I know it’s quite too early for a countdown to NanoWrimo. The National Novel Writing Month is still seven months from now, but I just feel like promoting this novel writing event for some good, boring reasons–
- My sister’s not at home.
- I don’t know what to write but I feel like I have to write something.
- I’m hungry and it makes me think about NaNoWrimo.
Lame reasons, right? Anyway, this novel writing challenge might not be new to some bloggers around WordPress, but for the sake of those people who don’t, let me first define you what’s this event all about.
What is NaNoWrimo?
It stands for National Novel Writing Month. It is a writing challenge wherein you have to write a 50,000 words within a month for each year–in this case, always in the month of November.
As long as you have completed a 50,000 words at the end of November, you are considered a WINNER–hooray. Now as a winner of NaNoWrimo, you will gain lots of benefits. Prizes vary every year, depending upon the sponsors. Below are some of the winner goodies–
- Your free printed copies of your book, sponsored by CreateSpace
- Free proof copy of your First Edition Hardcover from Lulu.com
- Writing softwares
- Free eBooks
- And other writing goodies
I’ve been participating in this novel writing for three years straight, ever since year 2011. I’ve been a WINNER ever since. Unfortunately, I never completed any of the books I wrote–only having to come up with more than 50,000 words. Admittedly, I regret having wasted all my winner goodies. I pray tell, however, that this year’s writing novel I can make up to 50,000 words again–and this time I hope I won’t waste the goodies again.
I will try to upload the three novels that I’ve written the previous years, they’re not yet completed but, I will post them chapter by chapter I think. It is such a waste to just junk them all. Will keep you all posted if you are interested.
If you are planning to join this year’s National Novel Writing Month, please let me know and leave messages below, it would be nice to communicate with you as early as possible. Perhaps exchange ideas, anyone? Oh, please add me as your friend on your NanoWrimo account, if this doesn’t bother you. Get in touch!
