National Novel Writing Month 2018

National Novel Writing Month 2018


So it’s that time of year again! For those that don’t know, National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) is a yearly thing where you write a full novel in one month, the wordcount goal being 50K or more. Any of you plan to do it this year, and if so which projects you plan on doing for it? Attempted it in previous years and beat that 50K goal?

Also if you have a NaNo profile you can link it here for others to check it and add you as a friend! Here’s mine as an example!


I’m planning on actually doing it this year with my planned novel for like a year or two now. I’ve been planning and planning for it but it hasn’t really developed into anything yet, so I’m actually in it this year to get atleast something done.


I’m finally starting work on something I’ve had the idea for in my head for a long time. It’s actually going to be a serial and not a novel, but I want to develop a sizeable backlog before I actually start releasing chapters since I’m generally not the fastest writer.

I started late because of illness though so I don’t see myself meeting the 50k goal. I’ve only written 2.3k words so far.


So far I’m at the 3.6k mark, so I’m way behind schedule lol. I want to do at least 15K but this speed doesn’t look like I’ll even make it that. For now I think as long as I get at least two chapters of Foul Play and another Pokemon short story written I’ll be happy.


Reached 4.4k last night but haven’t gotten any more done yet today. Might still manage some but it’s a bit dubious.
