30 November signaled the end of the National Novel Writing Month, better known as NANOWRIMO.
Writers of all genres and levels of experience took the challenge of writing fifty-thousand words in the thirty days of November.
Today, many of those writers are sitting before their computers or with pen in hand frantically writing in the effort to meet the challenge.
The NANOWRIMO website has a tool to count the words written and judge success. The writer copies the words written from the computer file and pastes into the word counter. When the count is at or above fifty-thousand words, a winner’s certificate becomes available for download.
The winner’s certificate notes the winner’s name and the title of his work.
I didn’t take the NANOWRIMO challenge this month. Instead, I created my own challenge to finish the fourth revision of the work I wrote during the 2016 challenge.
I can create a winner’s certificate for my challenge and issue it to me. The fourth revision was completed on 28 November.
In 2016, NANOWRIMO suggested I spend December finishing the novel and getting it ready for publishing. Needless to say, I didn’t.
Use the comment form to let me know if you receive such an email from NANOWRIMO. You can use it to let me know if you plan to work your novel until published. Or was this just an effort to win the challenge?
Life got in the way. November and the first couple weeks of December are the absolute busiest at my day job. Between 12 hour days, kids, and no kitchen, Didn’t get much written 🙁
I hope things settle before the holiday sneak up on you.
No kitchen with kids must be a challenge, added to long days working!
December 14th. We present to the Board on. the 14th…
And yeah, not having a kitchen since Aug 20th has been awful. Making a lot of use of the crockpot and just bought an instant pot.
My wife uses an instant pot for many meals. She has made spaghetti, roast, ribs, and more. She gets recipes from the web. She is doing cheesecakes for gifts this Christmas. Hope you enjoy yours, and you have a kitchen soon!
