An Ode To NaNoWriMo

God, it’s so beautiful.

Ah NaNoWriMo, how I love you! Let me count the ways.

1. NaNoWriMo is in November. For the entire month. That’s 1/12 of the year!

2. NaNoWriMo has other months for writing. There is Camp NaNoWriMo, which runs during May and July.

3. You can adjust your word count. Thank god. I could never write 50,000 words in 1 months.

4. Motivation. When I know that someone or something is keeping track of my writing, I work harder so I don’t feel embarrassed, like I didn’t do anything.

5. Pep talks. NaNoWriMo literally sends you a pep talk written by a famous author every week to keep you going.

6. Their logo is a shield. A SHIELD, PEOPLE. ITS SO BEAUTIFUL.

7. You will have no excuse not to do it, because 300,000 other people are. So you can finally start that book.

8. You can finally write down one of those randomly awesome book ideas you get in the shower or something.

9. When you are on your computer writing your novel, and someone asks you what you are doing, you can just say casually “Oh, just writing the next great novel. Did I mention I’m going to do it in a month?”

10. It’s absolutely free. And absolutely awesome.


I bet you have something you want to say... Go ahead!
