NaNoWriMo and other sites for writers

October 31, 2013 at 2:00 pm Leave a comment

Since the last few posts have been about writing, I thought I’d share a link that a fellow editor posted to our listserv yesterday. Since some editors are also writers, it was certainly applicable, and since editors work with words, those who don’t write, apart from helping their authors, might enjoy reading some of the material posted.

Before I post the link,  I want to mention that NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) begins November 1st and runs for the full month. In this event, you write a novel in a month. Seems incredible to do that, but that’s what it’s all about. Not about the perfect plot or perfect anything, just to get a novel written. I participated in 2010 and wrote my first novel. It’s still under scrutiny and who knows what will happen with it.

A fellow editor who is also a writer had her fantasy novel published this year. Dragon Whisperer, by Vanessa Ricci Thode was a product of NaNoWriMo, so it can be done. I’ll wager that much revision was done afterwards. It’s a good story.

Fellow writers are saying they’ve signed up and need peers to cheer them on. I’ll cheer them on from the sidelines this year, writing too, but not part of NaNoWriMo this time.

If you wish to go through the zany process of writing a novel in a month, sign up here, but do it today or at the latest, tomorrow, the first day of November. You’ll need the 30 days to write 50,000 words!

Now for the site for writers, containing some great links and winning stories, go here. Thank you, Christa, for posting this link.
