November Is All About NaNo Madness!

WELCOME TO NOVEMBER! OUR THEME FOR THE MONTH IS ALL ABOUT...

NaNo Madness!

Since after all, November is NaNoWriMo!

And what exactly does that crazy acronym stand for?

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel. Here’s a little more about how it all works.

So what does that mean for you? 

Well, the Buccaneers will be celebrating an entire month of everything NaNoWriMo which means we'll be upping the ante on our Word Sprints! Look for us to Sprint three times a week (hopefully at minimum) and join us if you can!

We'd also love to cheer you on if you decide to NaNo it up this year! Look for some of the YA Buccaneer crew around the NaNo forums -- and let us know your NaNo handle in the comments below so we can add you as a writing buddy! 

Our NaNo handles:

Erin L. Schneider: elcope
Bridgid Gallagher: Bridgid_Gallagher
Rachel Searles: Rachel S
Kris F. Oliver: KrisFOliver
Sara Biren: JRMinnt
Kelly Loy Gilbert: Kelly Loy Gilbert
Heidi Sinnett: HeidiLab

We're also incredibly lucky to have one of our crew -- the ever lover-ly Neptune (AKA Kelly Loy Gilbert) - on the Associate Board for NaNoWriMo! She'll be taking part in NaNo's The Night Of Writing Dangerously on Sunday, November 17th in San Francisco - a writing marathon that takes place over an entire evening!

And to help support Neptune and NaNo, we hope to be hosting our own virtual Night Of Writing Dangerously as well -- please check back again for more details!

 

DO YOU PLAN ON JOINING US FOR NANO MADNESS THIS NOVEMBER? WE SURE HOPE SO!
