Writing The Next Best-Seller With NaNoWriMo Pins
NaNoWriMo pins may sound like something promoting a weird new slang, but they’re really used to represent National Novel Writing Month. Since 1999, November has been known as National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. Starting on the first day of November, event participants begin the process of writing a 50,000-word novel by the end of November 30. The goal is to provide people with a unique approach to creative writing. But don’t worry if you aren’t a professional writer. NaNoWriMo is for published and non-published authors alike; it’s for everyone!
For anyone who has wanted to write, NaNoWriMo provides various supports throughout the month. Here are three ways they help writers meet their goal:
- Track your progress
Participants who sign up for National Novel Writing Month on the official website can use the tracker on their profile to mark word count and earn badges for meeting milestones. This helps writers keep pace with their goal. It also rewards the hard work and dedication needed to write a novel.
- Get pep talks
NaNoWriMo has many published pep talks from well-known authors. From Lois Lowry to John Green, there are over 80 pep talks available to you. They can even be delivered directly to your inbox throughout November. The pep talks can help motivate and inspire you to keep writing.
- Meet with fellow writers
By completing a profile on the National Novel Writing Month website you can connect with other writers online. There is also the opportunity to meet in person at events held by a municipal liaison. These are volunteers who host write-ins, parties, and other events throughout the month of November. Those who attend can meet with other authors, ask questions, and get feedback.
