NaNoWriMo 2019!

NaNoWriMo 2019

It's time for the biggest writing event of the year

 

Over the years, Movellas has gone NaNoWriMo loco in November. For those of you who don't know, National Novel Writing Month happens every November and it is the most intense, but exhilirating challenge a writer could take on.

 

...All you have to do is write 50,000 words in 30 days, which is just 1667 words a day. No big deal, right? The basic idea behind it is that you will have the rough makings of a short novel by the end of the month. Most people spend October planning and outlining, but if you're just hearing of it now, be a NaNoWriMoer and jump in! 

 

Keep in mind that the first week is one of the most frantic so let us know how it’s going down in the comments. Entering a competition like this one is a great way to get feedback on your writing and produce plot ideas as the month goes on. By the end of it, who knows? You might have started your first novel.

 

We encourage all of our movellians, aspiring novelists, and amateur writers to enter NaNoWriMo!

 

The Competition

  • Plan to write 50,000 words (a short novel, or the majority of a longer one;) in the month of November, or just 30 days. This means writing 1,667 words every single day of November.
  • Not doing NaNo this year? Why not get in the spirit and commit to adding a chapter to a new movella every day?
