A 30-Day Writing Adventure
JuNoWriMo (http://junowrimo.com/) is June Novel Writing Month, started by Becca J. Campbell and Anna Howard to have a slightly different take on a month long noveling adventure. For starters, you don’t have to write fiction (You can write creative non-fiction, so bring on the funny/meaningful memoirs or whatever else), write a new work (Did you write 5 pages last month and you can’t get going? That’s okay, write the next 50,000 words with us!), or work on all one piece (Want to write short stories? Knock out 5 of 10K words each, and you’re there!).
The goal is 50,000 words in June, or 1667 words/day on average, just like NaNoWriMo, the event that has inspired so many novels.
And for those of you who think that writing that many words that fast will lead to poor writing quality, we have to say, that’s sort of the point. Not that you want to write poorly on purpose, but that most first drafts aren’t all that great, and will need lots of work. But you can’t edit until you have a draft, and no one writes consistently brilliant prose the first time around.
I found JunoWrimo quite interesting. But it’s going to be very challenging for me. I will try my best. Let’s hope I can complete it.
Wish me luck 🙂
