I have tried NaNoWri last year and failed miserably. I came across this interesting and fun event through ANWA twitter post and thought it would be fun to enter. It is held for six days so it allows me to set a lower goal than 50K, something I feel I should start off with before aiming for a larger goal. Here is the scoop about it with a link to the blog if anyone wants to sign up for it.
The October Madness Write-a-Thon is a six day challenge hosted by Britney Gulbrandsen. It will run from 12:01 AM Monday, October 7th until 11:59 PM Saturday, October 12 in whatever time zone you are in. This write-a-thon is meant to be fun. It’s a personal challenge to push yourself to write more than you normally would, no matter how much or how little that is. Any type of writing is allowed: brainstorming, fiction, articles, blogging, book reviews, journaling, editing, etc. Writing sprints, twitter chats, challenges, and giveaways will accompany the write-a-thon, but all are optional. Please visit www.britneygulbrandsen.com for more details.
Happy readings and writing to you all and don’t forget to come back for our newest review coming up in a few days.
