Thing You Might Like: Nanowrimo

Hoo boy!

Nanowrimo - or National Novel Writing Month for long - is an ingenious annual event which takes place from November 1st to November 30th. It'd appeal to all you budding (Heh.) young writers out there, looking to get some pages under your belt.

The challenge? To write a 50,000 word novel in a single month.

It's a great idea, emphasising quantity over quality. Just getting all your words and concepts down on a page all at once, then cleaning it up afterwards. Writing a novel is one of those things that too many people want to do but never end up doing, so participating in a mass challenge is one way to motivate yourself to get it done. Who knows? Maybe you'll get picked up. You'll definitely get an inimitable sense of accomplishment. Even if you don't finish, you'll still have something to look back on with pride.

Basically, give it a look. You might like it!

And if you had no vested interest in all of the above, here's a song.

It's like warmly melting in electric marshmallow paradise.


  1. I personally believe that some of the world's greatest stories are written in a crunch.

  2. that song is exactly how you describe it. and this seems like a fun challenge, ive always wanted to write a novel, so yeah, maybe this is enough motivation for me to start...tomorrow lol

  3. Very cool song man, awesome video. Following you now, why don't you check out my blog too?
