So today I joined JuNoWriMo. If you have been following this blog, then you know that I am working on a novel. I plan on completing it within the next two months. I recently discovered JuNoWriMo and decided to sign up. Here is a blurb from their website that explains the purpose behind JuNoWriMo:
JuNoWriMo is June Novel Writing Month, started by Becca J. Campbell and Anna Howard to have a slightly different take on a month long noveling adventure. For starters, you don’t have to write fiction (You can write creative non-fiction, so bring on the funny/meaningful memoirs or whatever else), write a new work (Did you write 5 pages last month and you can’t get going? That’s okay, write the next 50,000 words with us!), or work on all one piece (Want to write short stories? Knock out 5 of 10K words each, and you’re there!).
The goal is 50,000 words in June, or 1667 words/day on average, just like NaNoWriMo, the event that has inspired so many novels.
I am super excited for this event. I plan on finishing my science fiction debut novel Metallic Heaven. If you are interested in participating (and seriously, why wouldn’t you), check out the website and join the Facebook group. Before the end of May, I will go into a little more detail about my strategy for JuNoWriMo.
In the meantime, kill your darlings, slay your dragons and keeping writing!
