The Mockingbird Book Emporium is eager to perpetuate the written word - even those that have yet to be written! NaNoWriMo is the National Novel Writer's Month and is in November.
What is NaNoWriMo?
Essentially, NaNoWriMo is the opportunity to write that novel you've always wanted to write! Everyone talks about that story, the one they've always intended to write but haven't the time. NaNoWriMo is the chance to actually stop talking about doing it and just do it! This is the it - a whole month set aside where you are accountable for putting forth a story.
I'm not good enough to write a book!
Now that's simply procrastination - an excuse to keep from actually getting to work. So NaNoWriMo is going to blow that excuse out of the water! NaNoWriMo doesn't judge your work by its quality - only by its QUANTITY. You are invited to submit to the site daily or hourly with your word output. You won't be judged on how well you write, only on how frequently you write. So put aside that tired old excuse of "I'm not good enough!" and do something productive for yourself - Stop talking and start writing!
Thinking of putting yourself to the test and doing it? Well, go here http://www.nanowrimo.org and look for the blue badge to make sure you're in the rest place. Can't have you using another excuse not to write, can we? lol
