    NaNoWriMo Explanation

    Discussion in 'NaNoWriMo' started by Adhulari, Nov 9, 2015.

    I had never heard of it before and yes, I've googled it. But perhaps it would be a good idea to create a sticky thread or something by someone who really knows what exactly this is about and how it works? Who is it for, how do you participate etc.?
    I can't be the only noob around here ^^

    It's for anybody, although it's targeted at people who have a novel buried inside them but struggle to finish it. The goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. You're not supposed to edit during the month, it's just a first draft and the emphasis is on churning out words, not perfecting them.

    In order to participate you sign up at http://nanowrimo.org/, register your novel under your profile, and update the word count daily. There are forums to talk to other writers and pep talks from established writers to encourage you.

    The website is operational all year round although will naturally be busiest in NaNo month (November).
