nanowrimo resources

Updated October 21, 2015


Each October, many bloggers participate in #Write31Days, choosing a topic and publishing a blog post every day for 31 days.  But November is for fiction writers.  That’s right, it’s National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short.  While I am not a fiction writer, I do have friends who spend every November working on a novel.  The goal of NaNoWriMo is to complete a 50,000 word novel during the month of November.

So, if you are one of the over 300,000 brave souls who will jump in to the NaNoWriMo frenzy, we wanted to give you a few resources that might help you accomplish your goal. Thus, here is a list of several of the best NaNoWriMo resources we have found.

First, the NaNoWriMo website helps you track your progress and is packed with great information, message boards for encouragement.

I love this post about hidden NaNoWriMo resources at your local library!  Seriously, for writers of any type, the library in your town should be one of the top resources on your list!

Check out all the great suggestions and encouragement about NaNoWriMo on The Write Practice.

And our editor Sandra Peoples has several posts that will help NaNoWriMo writers.

Be sure to follow the #NaNoWriMo hashtag on Twitter to connect with other writers and get even more encouragement and resources.
