Write your novel: NaNoWriMo 2015

Anyone interested in participating in this year's NaNoWriMo? For those who aren't familiar with it, it's an international event/challenge where you write a 50, 000 word novel in 30 days during the month of November. It's free! More info here:

http://nanowrimo.org

Our local group Swiss Wrimos hosts official write ins in Zürich.

Stop wasting time searching for the perfect book, write it!

Re: Write your novel: NaNoWriMo 2015

Can't believe it's that time of the year again.. time flies Never participated myself, but couple friends have successfully published novels they wrote for NaNoMo (though it took them several months to revise!).
If you are on Twitter, you can use #NaNoWriMo to exchange ideas and motivate each other while writing. Many magazines will also tweet their advice during the next month, e.g. Writer's Digest.

Re: Write your novel: NaNoWriMo 2015

Will be doing this again this year - self-published my first novel two years ago off the back of a Camp NaNoWriMo and a lot of hard work.

Slightly miffed that ALL the write-ins are in Zurich - there are NaNoers on the other side of the Rostigraben too you know!

Re: Write your novel: NaNoWriMo 2015

Absolutely! I understand. We have regional forums for all of Switzerland, an online chat room as well as unofficial write ins in Basel, Geneva, Lausanne, or anywhere else wrimos would like to host one. I'm only one person (for an entire country), live in Aargau and travel over an hour myself to get to Zürich to host the meets.
Unfortunately, I can't be everywhere at once, which is why I rely on willing wrimos to help me out and host events in their area.
Please feel free to attend one of the other write ins in Geneva or even host your own in a city close to you. I hope this doesn't deter you from participating in this fun event

The lack of write ins hasn't deterred me, but a sudden hospitalisation has done for my novel this month. 😢

Re: Write your novel: NaNoWriMo 2015

oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. I know you don't need me to tell you this, but you come first, so make your health a priority. So that you're nice and strong to pump out those words at a later date. Get well soon, and there's always camp nanowrimo
