    This sounds like a fun challenge! I've been wanting to write a book, maybe this is the perfect time to start!

  2. I tried and failed last year, but I'm going to try again!

  3. I have not done NaNoWriMo before but it sounds intriguing!

  4. brittany says:

    oh my gosh, how cool!!!!

  5. I have always wanted to do this, but between work, family, hobbies, and my blog I don't think I'd have time.

  6. Cece says:

    Awesome!!! I thought about it last year but I was too far along in my novel to really participate and this year I'm done with said novel but all I can think about is finishing up on the editing!! Maybe next year. Best of luck to you!!

  7. This is great! I have Scrivener for writing and I set goals by word count, it really helps me stay focused and KEEP WRITING. Maybe I'll finish my half finished novel now…

  8. Love, love, love this post! I have a document I started for this last year, but never made it very far in- I really haven't given it much thought again, and can't believe it's already nearly November, but this post might have inspired me a little bit šŸ™‚

    I heard about NaNoWriMo a couple years ago at a book signing and have wanted to try it ever since! I just never got up the gumption to do so. I really want to participate this year but I am not really sure where to start. I agree that having a friend or online buddy would be very helpful!

  10. This is an interesting challenge. It would take me 30 days to even figure out what theme I would want to write!

  11. You've inspired me, I'm doing it! If not now…when? (:

  12. Every year I say I'm going to do this and then I don't. THIS IS THE YEAR. Thank you for the encouragement. P.S. This is me telling someone šŸ™‚

  13. henning love says:

    i haven't done one ever but maybe i should this time, you gave some really gave tips to help anyone succeed!!

  14. I've never done it, but have had so many friends do it over the last several years. I'm trying to get a few things in order to see if I can fit this in this year! Thanks for the tip!

  15. I love this so much! I was actually just messing around on the Nanowrimo when I should be reading for class. THIS YEAR WILL BE MINE! Great tips for knocking it out of the park. Are you giving it a go this year? I used to do this in college but it's been years so I'm geared for a new run at it.

  16. Every year November slides in and I'm unprepared for NaNoWriMo, but NOT THIS YEAR. This year I'm actually mentally preparing and I'm going to go for it!

  17. I love creative writing, and these tips were spot on! Thanks for sharing. šŸ™‚

  18. I love doing this challenge, it has been awhile but I am excited to be joining in this year! These tips are so useful šŸ™‚

  19. I've done NaNo several times. I really enjoyed it, but I think I'm done with it. I got what I needed from the experience, and even made some real life friends in the process.

  20. I've been thinking about doing it… I just have no idea what I want to write! Is that bad?

  21. Omgosh this sounds so fun and intimidating! Is this how you wrote your book, Chels?!

  22. noooooo!!! please tell me it's not almost november already. i feel like every time nanowrimo comes around i tell myself i should do it the following year.. and now here i am again totally not prepared. looking forward to your novel! šŸ™‚

  23. I've never done it before, but I love the idea of being part of a bigger movement where everyone is working towards a similar goal! It's a great way to stay accountable!

    This is great! I am working on writing a bit more, and I've picked up the pace on a little novel I left behind. This will give me more motivation to get it done!

  25. Once I graduate, I think I'll try this:) Such a cool idea!

  26. I don't know if I could write that much but I love the idea of breaking it up into smaller more manageable goals.

  27. Every year I think about doing it. And every year I go, yeah no. haha. I have respect for anyone who takes on the challenge!

    This is a great post! And these are some really helpful tips. I did Camp NaNo this year in July, and I found having a writing buddy really helped. It motivated me to keep going, 'cause I've done NaNo once before and quit after four chapters.

    Definitely doing it again next month!

  29. I'm not much of a writer (yea, I know that's weird for a blogger to say) but I have a huge qualifying exam coming up in May and it would be great to have a huge chunk of the written part done, so maybe I'll work on that during NaNoWriMo

    I want to try, but I don't even know what I'd write about!

  31. I participated in NaNo this past month for the first time and finished the first draft of my book. I felt so accomplished! You've officially become an inspiration to me because now I'm working on editing and publishing it.
