There’s only 16 days left until Nanowrimo and it’s high time to join the community.
There are a lot of different ways to get involved but I would suggest to start by going to nanowrimo.org. If you haven’t signed up yet or announced your novel, now is the perfect time. Or maybe you are like me and still haven’t zeroed in on an idea yet, no matter what, you can still get involved!
Nanowrimo has absolutely fantastic forums where you can basically find anything and everything. From age-groups to adoption society to genre forums. There are threads for people who are struggling, there are threads for the crazy overachievers and there are threads where your characters can interact with other characters. All in good fun. No matter what you are looking for you can probably find it here, however, in the off chance that you can’t, you can always start your own thread.
The second place I would recommend is the home region on nanowrimo.org. Here you can join a region close to you and maybe find the crazy nano should close to you. If you’re lucky there will be meet ups and real life write ins you can go to and meet people in your area.
We also have to talk to twitter. Many many many writes use twitter to stay in touch and talk to other wrimos. Personally I use twitter to join word sprints. Nano got it’s on word sprints account which is basically running sprints all through November. Totally awesome!
A lot of people document their nano journey by vloging on youtube. Do a general search for Nanowrimo 2017 and you’ll find a bunch of people to who are doing Nanowrimo.
As I’ve written this post I should probably get out of my own lurking tendencies and join the discussions.
