Anyone Else Participating in National Novel Writing Month This Year?

Hi! I'm just curious if anyone else will be doing NaNoWriMo this year :D. If you're unfamiliar with it, it is an event that happens every November where you write a 50,000 word novel on whatever you want! If you "win" by writing 50,000 words, you get access to some pretty neat prizes such as free publishing for your book, discounts on writing workshops, discounts/freebies on writing merch/materials, and whatever else awards may be offered that year. Each year the awards vary, so those were just some prizes I've gotten in the past :). If you're interested their main website is here.

So is anyone else doing it? :D What is your book about this year, or have you not planned it out yet?

I'm currently brainstorming mine right now, and I'm planning on finishing up my novel from a previous year's NaNo (yes, you can continue books in the event; you just have to write 50,000 words in the month of Nov :)). It's so close to being done so I want to finish it up. Mine is an adventure/action + romance + fantasy set in a world that is futuristic because of magic use + technology, but still in the past society-wise. In a very very short summary, it's about a prince losing his kingdom and having to reclaim it.

I hadn’t t heard of this! If my brain wasn’t mush I would definitely participate but I’m going to pass the information on to writers I know.

i should really do nanowrimo this year, i've needed to focus on my writing but that's been a bit difficult... i'll probably cheat and do a previous unfinished work
lol that's what I'm doing actually! And maybe I'm cheating a little bit more by plotting out a scene right now and doing a rough draft over the weekend since the inspiration is fresh in my mind + I'm in the mood 👀. Sometimes it is easy to lose focus + writing spirit! But I swear this is all I'm doing ahead of time 😅

@Magically Clueless @starbrite I always try and do Hourly Comic Day, and 24 Comic Day every year (plus the inktober thing I'm doing right now) and I try not to worry about cheating on stuff like this anymore. I figure if you've got an old draft, or inspiration, or something like that, that helps with these events to make it easier or enjoy it more than I say go for it!

Good luck, I hope it turns out well!
