5 Reasons To Join NaNoWriMo

HERE are some reasons to consider NaNoWriMo, from our very own friend of the blog Rachel Poli.

In a few days, we’ll run the reasons NOT to do NaNoWriMo.

But for those of you on the fence, Rachel explains the benefits of such an (insane) endeavor!

We’re halfway through October, believe it or not. November is going to start before we know it.

It seems like we have a good amount of time left. Two weeks is a good chunk of time, but that always seems to go by in a blink of an eye.

Yet, there are some people who are still unsure of whether they want to participate in NaNoWriMo or not.

So, with about two weeks left to decide, I thought I’d help those people out a little bit. Here are a few reasons as to why you should participate in NaNoWiMo.

NaNo 2015

1. It’s a great community.

NaNo isn’t just about the writing. It’s also about finding other writers who can help and support what you do. Find writers in your genre, in your age range, etc. There are so many people in the same boat as you and they’re there to help…

  1. Hi Dan – I have signed-up for the first time for this year’s event. I’m going to give it a good go but it’s certainly going to be a challenge to fit it in with other writing commitments. Do you have any advice for new people like me? Thanks!

  2. So according to my powers of addition and skills at calendar usage, you’re going to post about why NOT to do NaNoWriMo a couple days after Nov 1? Oo, clever boy, because we’ll already be doing it by then — TOO LATE TO STOP NOW!

    Well, that’s the plan, at least. First novel, first NaNoWriMo, high hopes, no idea what I’m doing, heart pumping with fear… No, wait, is that excitement? No, I was right before, that’s fear… Well, we’ll see how it goes. (( Eep.)) 🙂

    1. I’m not actively trying to discourage anybody from doing NaNoWriMo. If i wasn’t 70% through writing my latest novel, I might try it. But I thought it would be funny to do an anti NaNo post right after it started. I could be wrong. It might just piss people off.

      1. I doubt it will piss many people off. The folks who didn’t sign on will be reassured that they made the right decision, and the people who are participating will still be so busy writing that (sorry) they probably won’t be reading many blog posts that day. Now, if you wrote a post halfway through the month about giving up on NaNo, you might get a different reaction… 😉
