Write On The River’s NaNoWriMo Challenge!

by admin Conference News. Posted on August 16, 2013.

Ready for an Exciting Challenge?  Ready to Kick-start your Writing Life?

Take on National Novel Writing Month with Write On The River!

What is National Novel Writing Month?

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo in shorthand), is an annual international literary sensation.  Millions of people all over the world have participated – hundreds of thousands every year!

NaNoWriMo inspires people from all walks of life to dust off their literary ambitions and finally write that novel they’ve always dreamed of.  Participants are challenged to write a complete novel (of at least 50,000 words), start to finish, in the month of November.  There’s a long list of books and authors that have gone on to get published after getting started as a NaNoWriMo project (click here to check it out)!

It’s daunting.  It’s ambitious.  It’s wicked fun.  And it’s a great way to jump-start your writing life, or zap new energy into one that’s been stalled.

What will the Write On The River NaNoWriMo group do?

Write On The River will be hosting a local NaNoWriMo support group in 2013 to encourage local writers (and those who want to become on) to take this challenge on.  We’ll meet three times: once in late October to strategize, organize and energize.  Once in mid-November for a write-in to high-five, get some more words down, and cheer each other on.  And once in early December to celebrate success (or valiant effort in pursuit thereof).  In 2011 Write On The River had 12 brave souls take on the challenge together…we’re hoping for even more in 2013!

Awesome!  How do I sign up?

Easy!  Email Dan at writeontheriverweb@gmail.com for more information and to sign up.  This program is open to anyone brave and bold enough to take it on!

Thirty days and nights of literary abandon.  A novel completed, and ready to revise to pitch to an agent or editor at our May Write On The River Conference.  Friends made, connections fostered.  It’s gonna be a beautiful thing.

Join Write On The River, and take on the NaNoWriMo challenge.
