So I logged in today to get a load of the snazzy new Nanowrimo website. I am a sucker for new bells and whistles, so it was a treat to explore the new design. It’s very visually-appealing, and it looks as if there are new ways to track and celebrate writing progress that I am itching to try. If you are at all tempted, and I will try to give my own pep talk soon about how nanowrimo should not be a source of self-recrimination, check out the website here: nanowrimo.org. Even if you do not wish to work on a project in November, you might find some helpful tools or discussion boards there. It is free to use, free to participate, though they always appreciate donations, and they partner with librarians and teachers, aka heroes.
I set up my project on there with the catchy title of SF#3, which is code for the young adult/science fiction novel I hope to flesh out, drawn from the third in a series of short stories I wrote years ago.
I then clicked on a link for nano prep, and I found my way to a number of tools and prompts that I can use this month to get ready for November, hoorah. Which also may give me the excuse to post on here when I work on them as a way to celebrate progress. It’s all about progress!
I made baby steps yesterday on my revision of the time management e-book and related projects, but I think I may be able to start to build momentum there, too. So I will likely write blog posts on that topic, too, preferably celebrating progress rather than kvetching about doubts and imperfections… ahem. As I say (too often), fingers crossed.
Hope your writing or other endeavors go well today!
