What did you do last November?

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 26, 2012, 9:14 PM



If you answered "NaNoWriMo", then boy do we have a treat for you. If you have been burnt-out from keyboard mashing 50,000 words  twiddling your thumbs with boredom since then, how do you feel about taking part in a blog about your experience of this year's NaNoWriMo? Send us a note with your own endeavours for this year's NaNoWriMo and we'll include them all in a blog entry that will help people who will either take their first try next year, or veterans looking for advice. Include what you found helped you write, what didn't, and most importantly what kept you AWAKE during those long hours of typing.

In your note, we'd also love a link to your NaNoWriMo profile, and even excerpts of your toils. Don't worry if you didn't reach the 50,000 word goal - it's the effort that counts and what you learnt from undertaking this momentous exercise.

So what are you waiting for? This is the cathartic moment that has been eluding you since the end of November, so get typing and you'll see your words posted! :eager:

Psst, remember that you can write your own Writers of the Revolution feature? If the thought scares you (we don't bite... much) then we're eager for your suggestions. Interested? Send a note and we'll give you the template, or just write it yourself and we'll do the formatting for you. Let's see who you would write about!

Ugh, trust me, you don't want to hear about my experience with NaNoWriMo last month. At least I met the deadline on time.

From the sounds of it, I really do want to. It's not only about who makes it in time and has an easy time, but especially for those who fight during it and have to deal with a lot of other stuff other than NaNo, and still try to reach the deadline. (:

Oh wow I feel so special now. I'll send you guys a mile long paper about the wonders/horror that was NaNo for me

I participated in NaNoWriMo for the first time this year! How long of a note are you looking for?

Oh yay, that's great! The experience of someone who did it for the first time is most valuable, I think. It really depends on how much you have to say; what you would suggest other writers, what suggestions did you read that you didn't find helpful, everything. (:

Sweet! I can definitely work with that. Is there a deadline or word requirement?
