No fooling…It’s that time again!
I will be posting regular motivational content at the #FLXwrimo Instagram, as well as our Facebook group. If you need the links, send me a DM or comment!
April is the 1st of two Camp NaNoWriMo events every year & they are much more laid back than November’s nano event. Pick a goal of any size and smash it!
This time around, I’m editing my nano2019 work-in-progress which is a paranormal fiction novel about a family in the Finger Lakes of Upstate NY (what?! How odd! Haha) that finds its members each challenged by a medical event that blurs the lines of reality, dreamscapes & the afterlife.
If you need an escape from social distancing and Covid19 talk, may I suggest you tell your story?
Exciting news! I was just made a NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison for the Finger Lakes Region!
If you’re in the area and either already a WriMo, or want to become one, look us up on the forums!
In case you’re not familiar with NaNoWriMo, let me expand on this a little.
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and is a free program and community for writers of all experience levels. The basic goal is to write a complete first draft novel during the month of November. It’s a community effort of group write-ins, word sprints and mentoring, both online and in person. It is a growing experience and a safe space for creative expression.
NaNo is broken up into regions for promotion, support, and other benefits. The Finger Lakes region is basically Cayuga, Ontario, Seneca, Tompkins, Yates and Wayne, NY counties. The ML is the coordinator for the Regional events. During NaNo (November) & the camps (April & July) they organize meet ups, write-ins, social events, etc. They are also the moderator(s) of their regional forum.
I’m still unpacking all of the information, but I wanted to shout this out. More to come, soon!
