Who wants to join me for Na No Wri Mo Month?

Okay, all you closet writers, who wants to join me for National Novel Writing Month in November?

Na No Wri Mo is a fun-filled month of frantic writing if you are anything like me. Why is frantic? Glad you asked, it is because you agree to write 50,000 words in 30 days. For me and my wring process that’s a lot! There are many organized and informal writing events or opportunities that go on with Na No Wri Mo to help us along

I have participated twice in Na No Wri Mo, once formally in 2015. I went to the designated meeting spots (one was a Husky 24 hr. Restaurant) in Calgary where I met with a dozen or so crazy writers and we waited until exactly 12:00:01 am on November 1st before we started writing. It was a lot of fun, to be with a plethora of young enthusiastic writers.

I also participated in a second Na No Wri Mo in 2016, which saw me chained to my own computer. Which was just as successful. But not nearly as fun!


I’d love to have a group of us form an informal writing support group. I don’t know what this could look like. But I’d love to hear from you if this interests you! Drop me a line at neil@shindao.com
