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. Why do I say it’s frantic? Glad you asked. It’s because you agree to write 50,000 words in 30 days. For me and my writing 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 hour 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, unofficially, in 2016. This time I was 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
