At the time of writing, we have 10 days left of NaNoWriMo. That means we are two thirds of the way through this literary adventure! For those of you on or past par, congratulations! For those of you (like me!) who are behind, 10 days is plenty of time! I say it every year, but it bears repeating: Even if you don’t make it to 50k, every word you write this month will be a word you hadn’t written on October 31st. As long as you’re writing, being creative, and enjoying yourself, then you have succeeded.
That being said, here are some upcoming ways we can help you succeed:
- Do some novel maintenance! Make sure you back up your novel, and once you’ve hit 50k,validate! Validation is the only way the website will know that you’ve won.
- Join us at the One Last Push Party! This is an all afternoon/evening event on the 30th geared to push you over the edge! Drop in when you can, stay as long as you’d like. Everyone is welcome, regardless of word count. More information on this thread in the forums.
- Save the date for the Thank Goodness It’s Over (TGIO) Party! We will be celebrating our month of literary abandon on Saturday, December 5th, in the early afternoon. All are welcome, regardless of word count. More details to follow.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. Remember, novels are the perfect excuse to get away for a little while when the family gets to be too much!
