Every year for the last few years I have decided that I will. Unfortunately, I have not been able to achieve the goal of writing 50,000 words in a month every time. But, I have done that at least once, and that keeps me motivated to attempt NaNoWriMo every year, and I have decided that I am going to try it this year as well.
In fact, I have decided that I am not only going to try, but win the NaNoWriMo this year.
Last year, I had written a blog post about easy tips for winning NaNoWriMo. So, I am not going to try and write another one this year, as I feel that what I had written last year is just as relevant this year. I had also created a spreadsheet that writers could use to track their progress during the NaNoWriMo. If you like you could check the spreadsheet out, and let me know if there is anything we could add to the sheet to make it better.
I feel that the one thing you should do to finish NaNoWriMo is to become a part of a group that is doing the NaNoWriMo. This way you can not only motivate others to win NaNoWriMo, but when you feel the need for motivation yourself, you can easily find it in the group.
I have observed that in any given group there is definitely someone who is willing and able to pull you through, provided you want to pull through.
In this direction, I have decided to create a list of NaNoWriMo’ers on this blog, so that we can pull each other through, and win the NaNoWriMo. In order to help me build this list, I would request you to drop a line in the comment box if you are participating in NaNoWriMo this year. I would also request you to mention your name, your blog address, your Twitter and Facebook id (If you have one and you are willing to share them with the world) in your comment so that the list can prove to be truly useful to everyone.
Thank you, and Happy Writing! 🙂
