nanowrimo 2020 announcement

Hey there,

and welcome to preptober season! Yes, this is a very busy month with a lot going on all at once.

For those of you unfamiliar with preptober, it’s the term writers use to refer to the month dedicated to preparing for NaNoWriMo. Again, in case you don’t know what that is, it’s a writing challenge in which you have to write 50k words during the month of November (a.k.a. National Novel Writing Month).

I love NaNo and have participated quite a few times, but never won it. November is an insanely busy month for me and I would always get swamped by work and uni and would never manage to reach the 50k-words mark. However, I’m determined to change that this year.

So I’m here to let you know that I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo this year (I couldn’t manage last year and missed it dearly) and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I took the month of July to plan out my entire novel and now can’t wait to finally start drafting it.

As I get everything ready, I’ll be updating you with some writing-related posts such as how I outline my novel, useful online resources for writers, etc. If you have any specific requestes on what you’d like to see, please let me know in the comments!

To wrap this up, I’ll tell you a bit about my w.i.p.: it’s a fantasy novel about a reluctant sailor, a mermaid and a scheming pirate. Their paths cross, and chaos ensues.

Are you participating in NaNo this year? What is your w.i.p. about?

Until next time,

  1. Awesome!! NaNo is a lotta fun!! I’m still debating whether or not to do it this year myself, but who knows? Your WIP sounds interesting too 😀 Can’t wait to hear more about it!!

    1. Do it! I was always super busy so I never won, but it’s such a rewarding experience nonetheless 😊 There’ll be some posts this month with some resources + tips but I’d say make a schedule or choose a set time to write every day. And if you can get ahead, do it! You never know when life can get too busy so it’s nice to have a little cushion to keep you on track. Good luck with NaNo! I hope you’ll love it 🥰
