November is for Writers!

Posted by at 9:55 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Rainbow_pen It's that time of year again. "What time?" you might ask. "The time to begin your holiday shopping? The time to eat pumpkin pie? The time where I might get a snow day?" And all of those would be true. But, it is also National Novel Writing Month!

I know last November 1st was a million, zillion years ago (or well, actually exactly one year ago), but in case you don't remember my blog post from last year, here are the basics:

  • November is National Novel Writing Month.
  • That gets abbreviated to NaNoWriMo.
  • If you are over 13, you can sign up for the main NaNoWriMo to write 50,000 words this month.
  • Anyone 17 years old or younger can sign up for the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program. In the Young Writers Program you get to set your own word goal.
  • Write, write, write!

Last year, 22,000 people participated in the Young Writers Program, so if you throw your hat into the ring this year, you'll be in good company.

And, if you need some help getting started; you can see what prompt the Story Starter churns out for you or check back here on Ink Splot 26 for a new writing prompt.

Good luck and happy writing!
