NaNoWriMo. Any participants?

Published November 12, 2013 by G.L.

Hope all is well in the month of November. Since it is a great month to write, Libertad and I have been taking advantage of the push of NaNoWriMo. Wanted to know if there were any takers as well?

Does anyone have unconventional methods on how they write?(Not sure why, but Libertad or I can not type anything until it is written on paper first. Our first two drafts are typically on the paper and pen method, which I see most typically type it out!)

We’ve been doing cool things on our review book blog “Twinja Book Reviews“, which we keep separate from our author blog. We actively seek out books that feature marginalized groups as main characters and love interests(POC, disabled, LGBTQ,non-Christian, etc.). So if anyone knows any recommendations, please let us know, or hop on over to the site =D

If you didn’t see it before, last month we met Nnedi Okorafor, and this month we met Marie Lu, author of “Legend”, “Prodigy”, and “Champion.” IMG_2501 IMG_2502

We hope to also meet David Levithan as well, as he’s coming to Connecticut too! He’s the author of many books featuring Queer characters as main characters and love interests, so we hope it goes well!

To close, just wanted to let everyone know, we have been writing to attempt to take advantage of NaNoWriMo, so our posts have been fewer than most months. Hope everyone can bare with, and hope for a great holiday coming up.

Is anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo?

  • I am, but it’s not going well, incredibly busy just now, hope I will manage a last minute spur at the end of the month and get at least 10, 000 words written then, but not looking hopeful. I will definitely carry on writing in December though.

  • I’m participating, but I’m very behind on word count. With the 1200 mile move, unpacking, getting the kids adjusted to their new schools, etc, I’ve slipped pretty far behind. Even if I don’t hit the 50K goal by the end of the month, I’m hoping Nano will help me establish better writing habits. Good luck to everyone who is participating!

  • I’m participating, but I’m very behind. In fact, I’m days behind. ;-; I suddenly became stuck in a writer’s block, but I’m trying to overcome it before the month is over.

    On a side note, I think i’s awesome you met Marie Lu! I’ve ever met her before, but spoken to her through deviantART and Twitter. She’s a really nice person and I’m a fan of her LEGEND book. 🙂
