How are you preparing for this year's National Novel Writing Month? (And if you're not participating . . . c'mon, you're on HubPages! You love to write!)
I honestly didn't know there was such a thing. I will definitely write this short novel I've been coincidentally tentatively planning to write next month anyway. Now it's a done deal! I'm glad I saw this post.
I wrote a longer novel over the last two years and then wrote a collection of short stories which I just finished up in the past few weeks. I can get excited about a short novel.
Thanks again for posting. So how are you celebrating?
I am new to the hub, but i love to write. I have been working on a short childrens novel for about a year. I have been looking for away to publish it. This my be my chance. How does this contest work?
it's not on Hubpages.
For NaNoWriMo you have to start something from scratch--no previously written material allowed. It's not a publishing venture so much as a motivation to write for those of us who need some extrinsic encouragement. Check out the link above and see if it's "write" for you! :-)
Just a reminder that you can participate in NaNoWriMo here on HubPages as part of our November HubPatron of the Arts contest (under the Fiction section, naturally):
Good luck, all participants!
I'm doing it! I'm going to try to churn out 50k in horror fiction! Didn't know you could participate here. Thanks for info!
I am going to set the bar high for myself and ask that I write two short novels. I have notes taken on both of them, I outline obsessively when I'm not writing, but haven't written a word yet on either of them. I imagine, from my notes, each will be between 30-40k. One of the novels is political satire about distribution of wealth in America, and the other one is magical realism about a boy getting over the death of his father.
Wow--two projects!! Good for you. I'll have all I can do to churn out one, I think.
Cdub, both sound interesting, but especially the one about the boy. God luck on your projects!
Horror fiction has always fascinated me. I love creepy moments. I think I will try to do some more "horror" in my writing at some point soon. I like dabbling with different genres and I like how this idea is inspiring me.
Thanks for the encouraging comment! I've been waiting to write the story about the boy for a long time, but it takes time for something like that to come out. I love writing about children, though, so it will be a labor of love! Even if it is grueling and hard.
I've done it for four years but thinking I may take this year off simply because I need to work on already in progress items. The rules are that it has to be new work. Even though I'm not writing a new story I will try to write 1667 a day rewriting and adding to an existing piece I need to finish.
I'm going to try it. I have a story that is popping up in my head and this will be the way to get it out.
I have already registered with nanowrimo, as I did it last year (failed miserably!!! lol). Is there any way to connect that registration with here?
Hey, everyone! NaNoWriMo 2011 starts in just 2 hours and 20 minutes (Central Time)! Are . . . you . . . ready??????????

How does one participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and still keep a full time Job?I love participating, though each year writers block gets the best of me. But even so, I have a hard time having enough time! How do you do it?

Hi, everyone. Thank you in advance for reading; this is a little long-winded.When I was a kid, I loved writing books. I'd sit at the computer for hours, typing. I knew I was going to be a writer one day. Even my elementary school teacher said I had talent. When I was 22 I got a publishing contract...

Back in November I wrote a novel has part of NaNoWriMo. Is there anyone else in the same boat? If so, what do you plan on doing with your unpublished novel?Also I am possibly interested in either Beta readers or novel swaps and thought that the HubPages community could be possibly a good place to...

How many of you are participating in NaNoWriMo 2014?It's been a while since I attempted to write a novel. The last one I wanted to make progress on is a kid lit fantasy. This one seems to be going in that direction. Feel free to "ping" me on the site. My NaNoWriMo name is...

Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? Are you participating?The silly sounding acronym is short for National Novel Writing Month. It's a commitment to write 50,000 words in November.As I write this, it's Nov. 2, so that requires writing about 1800 words a day. It isn't a contest per se, just a...
