Every August students return to my community college world. Students make me think of English classes. English classes make me think of writing. Writing makes me think of 50,000 words in 30 days.
Nanowrimo is the acronym for the yearly event known as National Novel Writing Month, a month where writers of all ages and abilities come together to not only write 50,000 words, but to meet other writers intent on doing the same. Since its inception in July of 1999, this event has steadily grown from 21 participants to over 400,000 in 2017.
Each year, many writers join NaNoWriMo for the first time. Their reasons vary, but their desire is the same as it is for those returning to write again and again: To motivate and be motivated by those who love to write. So how can you set yourself up for success?
