NaNoWriMo, what can I say about it? I love it. I enjoy it ten times more than Inktober. I feel Inktober prompts draws away from one of the most creative months of the year. I think something like Inktober belongs in a month like April. What sets NaNoWriMo apart is that it encourages your own creativity. No prompts it just encourages you to sit your ass down and write that butt off. What is NaNoWriMo? NaNoWriMo is a non profit that gives creatives the workflow tools that instill good writing habits. National Novel Writing Month, it is personal challenge to get you to knuckle down and write. The rules are simple, write 50,000 words in the month of November.
What it means for me. Between making Art, Videos, working a day job and managing the webzone the 50,000 word count is unattainable but for the last two years, I do as many as I can. Last year I attempted a story. This year I am just trying to write as much as I can for my content. For me, It is just trying to beat my word count from last year. That was a meger 2244 word count. So far this year I am on track to beat the previous year. As of the 8th I am already at 1750 word count. And that is what NaNo does. The habits I learned last year carried me through 2020. Now that Nov is here again, it will reenforce what I have learned and push me to do more.
I first learned of NaNoWriMo from the awesome writer Jenna Moreci. She has a youtube channel helping people learn how to write novels. If you need to write anything her channel is essential for your writer’s tool box. Her video was actually about how she does not participate in NaNo. But she did a great job listing the pros and cons of doing the challenge. I listen to a lot of her content when I am driving around at my day job. Go sub and follow her socials for writers encouragement and real advice.
