National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

Have you ever participated in NaNoWriMo? No
-How many times? 0
What genres were your NaNos? None

Are you planning on participating this coming November? I'm going to try to remember.

What do you hope Worldsmyths will help you accomplish in terms of your writing goals? Actually start writing. Maybe seeing others progress will motivate me to put pencil to paper and start writing. Get over my self doubt and self criticism when working on a project. Maybe build up the courage to share it one day?

Hi and welcome to the forum! I look forward to interacting with and getting to know you. :) I hope seeing all the discussions and such will help you get over the self-doubt and criticism so that you can share your writing. Let us know if you have any questions! Also, if you feel brave at some point before the end of the month, maybe check out our September writing challenge and see if it's something that will inspire you to write something. :D

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I might take a gander-peek at that. The prompts look interesting.

Welcome :) I hope you enjoy it here!

There are lots of areas for you to explore, and maybe our writing prompts section can help you as well as the monthly challenges. If you really want to get stuck into some discussion we have our Question of the Day section where we ask various types of questions about being a writer and our work. Otherwise, explore and don't worry about reawakening old threads! New discussion is always good :D
