NaNoWriMo: Letting your vision glow


October is a month of traditions, whether it’s celebrating a harvest festival or Halloween activities.  But Harvesting is also another way to reap the seeds we sow in our own journey, honing the talents and skills that make us who we are.  Writers all over the world look at November, also known in the noveling world as National Novel Writing Month (or the otherwise cryptic, NaNoWriMo) with anticipation, using October as a chance to gear up for one of the greatest writing challenges of all. writes: National November Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun and creative writing challenge starting on November 1st and ending November 30th.  The goal is to write 50,000 words in just one month.  Sounds fun, crazy, intensive, and highly rewarding?  Well, it is.  The point is to hide our inner critic and simply...write.  NaNoWriMo connects writers from all over the world, inspiring them to look ahead at the finish line, and not worry about the quality of the work--at least not at first.  It’s easy to get sidetracked into editing, research, and rewriting, but that can warp the creative process, making the writing experience a burden instead of a fun and exhilarating adventure.  

NaNoWriMo is a tool used to harvest our writing skills.  It provides structure, a community, and support to achieve a creative goal.  Equipped with motivational emails all month long, tips from published authors and a forum where participants swap ideas, critique, and resources, NaNoWriMo is a writer’s best friend.

Take this month to familiarize yourself with NaNoWriMo.  Browse the website, gather ideas, and look ahead to a month full of creative madness.  

Want to manifest success this November?  No better way to do it than to visualize having those 50,000 words already written.
