Don’t you just love this time of year? The weather is changing, the best holidays are coming up, and it’s almost National Novel Writing Month!
If you’ve never participated in NaNo WriMo before, you have been missing out. I can’t even fully express to you how much NaNo has meant in my life, but today I’m going to try my best to give you some of my personal NaNo WriMo story.
If you’re interested in giving it a shot, you can sign up for the fun adventure of writing a novel in a month over at NaNoWriMo.org. It seriously has the potential to change your life for the better.
I would love for you to “friend” me over on the site, so I can watch your progress as go into November. My username is sarramaria.
For fun, I created a couple of free word count trackers for you to use throughout the month (and really anytime).
One is specifically for those with a 50,000 word count goal. The other one is customizable to work with any goal you have! Watch the video linked above for a quick walkthrough of how to use the sheets to track your word count for NaNo or for any novel-writing project.
If you are participating in NaNo this year, comment and let me know what you’ll be writing and what you’re doing so far to prepare. Have you done NaNo before? Or will this be your first year giving it a shot?
I hope to see you there!
I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
This will be my seventh (?) Year doing nano, and I’m really hoping to make significant progress on the book I’ve been editing this year. I’ve been doing some prep but not near as much as I wanted. A little is better than none though!
I’m doing my own thing this year, finishing up a romance novel that’s already at about 30k.
