For those who are not familiar with both terms, you can click the link above and it will take you straight to the aforementioned sites. Simply put, NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. It’s held every year in November and thousands of writers from all over the world participate together. All you have to do is put some of your time aside and write 50,000 words in the span of 30 days.
Easy, right? *screaming inside*
[Four days to plot your story. Time’s ticking, mate.]
I am thinking of joining in the fun. The website is nice. Registration is free. You’re provided with all kinds of tools, tips and apps (not to mention the support of your fellow struggling writers) and please have a look at the list of sponsors and the bounty. It certainly sealed the deal. You win when you pass the 50K mark, much like a marathon.
The latter is held monthly, as I understood just now from browsing the site. NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month and all you have to do is post one entry per day for the month you picked. Say you pick November then you ought to have 30 blog posts and post it every single day. I guess this one is easier. All you need to do is register your blog at the official NaBloPoMo blog and you might be eligible for the sweepstakes. Other ideas for posts are reviews, haiku, poems, videos, photos, Facebook statuses or maybe your tweets.
Let’s bleed ink in November 🙂
