Windows of Nano Inspiration

Planning to participate in Nano? October is the time to get inspired to write a novel in a month by planning your plot before November. Do you have a story that inspires you? Tell it. I've never done this before and alas, the timing is not right again this year. Whether or not it's for you  just now, you owe it to yourself as a writer to learn what I just learned. Check out the national site here. Learn what you never knew, find your regional group, and more.

I learned that there is all kinds of support during nano and that if you need to participate during another time, you can do so through camp nano. You don't have to wait until November rolls around. If your window of opportunity for inspiration is coming a month or two from now, you don't have to wait a year. I think I'm going to take advantage of that the next time I'm ready to start a new novel.

How about you--are you participating in Nano or have you done so before? Leave us your enthusiasm or best tip. And good luck!

Hi Renae! Thanks so much for this post! I SO want to participate, but it's just not going to happen for me in November. I was thinking I might do my own personal one in December or January. Totally didn't know about the camp thing you can do at other times of the year. Will totally check that out! Thanks so much! Hope all is well with you! :D

I think a lot of us are in that boat. I was glad to learn about camp nano too. And life is good. Thanks.

I did it last year and found the energy infectious! It's such a great program and I can't wait to do it again :)

Good luck. It's got to feel good to know you can do it again if you already won.
