Did You Love NaNoWriMo? Then Check These Out…

I was looking at the “I Wrote a Novel, Now What?” page on the NaNoWriMo site, and found a list of future writing events. There are more 30-day writing efforts, for those who loved NaNo so much they can’t wait until next November, as well as for those who couldn’t finish in November and want to try again soon; to editing months and poetry months. There’s more than one event almost every month.

NaNoWriMo isn’t affiliated with most of these, but have posted them on their site. So I thought I’d share with all of you!

NaNoFiMo.org – National Novel Finishing Month (December). Goal: 30,000 words.

FAWM – February Album Writing Month (February). Goal: Write 14 original songs in a month.

    Thanks Kathan! Yesterday I made a list of writing prompt ideas for short stories and poems. Now I can fix a deadline to some of these ideas. The July Novel in a month challenge looks like something I’ll probably take on.

    I think DS should do the poetry one. I would love to start another challenge but I need to get at least one of my three stories finished. I’m giving myself one last weekend with my NaNo story then I’ll put it on ice for a while.

    Great minds think alike! I was gonna post some of this yesterday and then I decided to post the Sol Stein points on character, plot and dialogue instead.

    Some of these look pretty interesting, but I’m too exhausted to think about any of them right now.
