NaNoWriMo: A Writing Competition

Hey, it’s only 1667 words a day...


November is National Novel Writing Month, which should get every writer really excited because it is the number one most fun/amazing challenge you will ever put yourself through. All you have to do is write fifty thousand words in 30 days, which is 1667 words a day, no problem right? If you're not doing NaNoWriMo this project might explain why your fellow Movellians disapear for a month!


The first feverish week of November is here and we want to know how it’s going. We’ve done something a little different for this competition because we know you’re already writing furiously. Submit the first 5,000 words of your NaNoWriMo story entry, and get a head start on your December editing. Entering a competition is one way to get feedback on your writing, which might be helpful for plot ideas as the month goes on.


Not doing NaNo this year? Enter by commenting your best writing tips OR make a book trailer for one of your stories.


So be brave and enter those unedited 5,000 words!
