#SocialCafe Chat Topic: Do You #NaNoWriMo (and Build Relationships)?

View the announcement for this #SocialCafe Chat..

Every year, there is an event for writers. It is called NaNoWriMo (stands for National Novel Writing Month). Really, it is a challenge. It is a challenge for writers everywhere to challenge them to write 50,000 words, for a novel.

The idea is to help writers to 1) know they can do it and 2) focus on working past the procrastination and getting “words on paper” even if it is not ready for the bestseller list... yet.

I think what Tom says (below) is key. The NaNoWriMo challenge helps with the writer’s process and for those of us, like Tom referenced, who like that best quality even in the draft, it helps to set us free... Free to get those words out and write. From there, we can build the quality for which we strive.

About this Topic/Event

The general rules mean that you are supposed to start your book in November, finish the 50k words in the same November, and that it is supposed to be a novel. That doesn’t mean that people do not have their own non-traditional ways of participating in NaNoWriMo. But, ultimately, it is about the writer’s journey, eh? So, we are here to chat about NaNoWriMo 2019 this week and next week... helping you writers to stay engaged...

Your bestseller book won’t happen unless you start the book and what better time than the present (i.e. NaNoWriMo)?
