NaNoWriMo 2010 is going on write now. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and it happens each November. The goal is to produce 50,000 words (unedited) of fiction in 30 days. Well this year, there is a new viral movement called Write Non-Fiction in November, which challenges non-fiction writers to write coherently 50,000 words of non-fiction in the month of November. ‚ I have tagged this WriNonFiMo or Write non-fiction month.

I am not writing a novel in 30 days – I’ve not really worked with fiction much. However, I am participating in WriNonFiMo. The result is that I will not be blogging much during November as I am trying to produce 1667 words per day for a book.

It is coming along well, though I’ve missed a couple of days because of a short vacation my wife and I are taking this weekend.

I’ll share some things with you through blogging as I have time – book reviews and videos, etc – but I will mainly be focused on writing this month. I wish you a great November and will see you back consistently in December.

  • I did this last year. I did it under the auspices of NaNoWriMo, but I did a non-fiction book myself. It was a great exercise in consistent writing, though the product wasn’t very useful. Most of the words I wrote were pretty terrible, but it opened the writing floodgates.
