Benefits of taking part in NaNoWriMo

Uninspired Writers

It’s that time of year again. November is but a week away, which means it’s nearly time for 2020’s National Novel Writing Month. I’ve taken part three times before, in 2015, 2018 and 2019. I’ve only managed the full 50,000 words once, but each time has been a fantastic experience. You don’t, by any means, have to join in with NaNo, but if you’re thinking you might want to here are some of the benefits of taking part.

A target to aim for
Having a target and a goal is a great way to keep you focused and on track. With 50,000 words constituting a win, you have a clear aim to reach for. It’s exciting, going after that goal, and the NaNo website will keep you up to date with graphs and word counts, so you can watch your story grow as you inch closer to the end.

  1. November is hell month at my job, so I wrote my book in July. It took about 21 days. July is the month where I have the least work to do at my day job.

    I’ll be upfront about it, but I can’t do my job well and write a book in 30 days at the same time.

    I’m sure that NaNoWriMo understands that concept.
