If you’re a blogger who is also a fiction writer, you decided to join NaNoWriMo this year, and you often wait till the last minute to get things done, then yes this last minute post about preparing for NaNoWriMo one week before it starts is definitely for you.
November is coming and, for writers, you may say this is kind of “our season.” November is NaNoWriMo which is National Novel Writing Month. If you’re not familiar with it, this is a competition that is held online every year where all participant writers dedicate their time to writing every day, starting November 1st to reach the goal of 50, 000 words by November 30th.
And while it has the word “Novel” in it, because that was the idea when they started it I think, creating a novel in 30 days, but you don’t necessarily have to write a novel.
It could be a collection of short stories, a non-fiction book of any type, or anything else; the point of this competition is that you develop the habit of writing every day and, hopefully, also end up with a finished first draft of your project of choice by the end of the month.
This post walks you through everything you need to start achieving your life goals today! Plus 8 practical steps you can easily follow and apply to every goal you have.
Most of us run into many great ideas and read inspiring articles or books that have practical thoughts and ways to improve our lives, but how many of us actually take the time to apply any of it? Well, not many.
As far as I can remember, I never really had a life goal that I was pursuing. If I ever had a goal it was usually short-term; and more often than not I’d get bored or lose hope and give up in a few weeks.
