Why I Won’t Be Doing NaNoWriMo This Year – The Climb #283

Tuesday 31st October 2017 So I won’t be taking part in NaNoWriMo this year, and it saddens me. Whilst I’ve seen some authors moan about NaNo I think it serves a useful function.  It teaches you that a novel is the product of a lot of continuous work.  And whilst the result of NaNo is [...]

NaNoWriMo 2014

If there’s been one thing that’s been grinding my gears lately, it’s some of the anti-NaNoWriMo sentiment out there.  Apparently there’s only one way to get stuff written (who knew?) and it isn’t NaNoWriMo (apparently).  Those pieces that aren’t just clickbait will tell you that NaNoWriMo is a waste of time and if you were [...]

Top Tips For #NaNoWriMo

So Day 1 of NaNoWriMo is going well and I now have nearly 4000 words down. It’s a little less than I would like but the day is not yet over, and I’m trying to make sure that, bad prose and all, at least I have a story that’s fairly consistent. Even so my eyes [...]

NaNoWriMo Challenge 2011

So I’ve been keeping this quiet as I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go ahead with this challenge. If I’m honest, I’m still not sure, but I’m going to attempt NaNoWriMo this year. Well, something along the lines of NaNoWriMo. So what is NaNoWriMo, I hear you ask? It stands for National Novel Writing [...]
