It's October 31st, and National Novel Writing Month officially kicks off tomorrow! Hopefully all this great planning & prep work everyone's been doing in Bootcamp throughout the last two months is about to pay off with epic word counts & 50,000 word wins! Even if your goal isn't to "win" but just to get some good solid writing done, you're well on your way.
Fall Bootcamp will continue on both the Facebook group and the @yabuccaneers twitter. Look for more sprints to be starting up this week to support everyone who's going for 50K this month.
Word Sprints Currently Scheduled:
Friday 9 AM ET, Tuesday/Thursday 8 PM ET
Check the Twitter feed and Facebook group, because we'll be adding plenty more sprints throughout the month of November.
And finally, a word from a veteran... I have 3 NaNoWriMo "wins", in 2005, 2009, and 2011. There have been a couple of years when my writing schedule was too packed with revisions and other things to participate. And then there's the 3 years when I started with stars in my eyes and admirable goals but just didn't get there due to family commitments, life, etc. Every year I didn't "win" I still got 30,000+ words, so just remember-- in the grand scheme of things, that's a win too!
Good luck this month!
