It’s finally arrived! That time of year when the leaves change colors, the air grows cold, and writers everywhere furiously type and scribble away at the return of National Novel Writing Month!
For anyone who may be unfamiliar, NaNoWriMo began in July of 1999 when a group of 21 writers and hopefuls gathered together to accomplish the seemingly impossible: create a 50,000 word novel in one month. From then it’s grown into a literary phenomenon encompassing the month of November. Now a 501(c)3 non profit, National Novel Writing Month continually believes in the transformational power of creativity and strives to “provide the structure, community, and encouragement to help people find their voices, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds – on and off the page.”
This year, Super Heroines, Etc. is going to be participating as well! Led by our president of the board, Fox Smith, we hope to provide the resources, inspiration, community, and encouragement to help you stay on track whether you are a seasoned wordsmith or aspiring novelist. By signing up, you will receive a digital packet of resources (including a printable novel worksheet and tracking sheet) and weekly email check ins.
Throughout the month, we will also have two write-ins with a mid-month check in attached to one, as well as an end of the month get together to celebrate all of your hard work!
If you have not already, sign up below and join us on this mighty 50,000 word quest!
