NaNoWriMo strikes again

This entry is part 10 of 20 in the series Nanowrimo

Okay, I admit I’ve succumbed to the annual NaNoWriMo fever. You’ll find my Whirlpool blog active once again and I’ll be posting my 2006 Wrimo antics over there. If you haven’t signed up but want to give it a try, go to the NaNoWriMo site and log in. My official page is listed under vikk.

I really like the new “book look” to each participant’s page with the realistic page-turning, but my favorite tool continues to be the way I can enter my daily word count and see the line move toward the final goal. This year I can even track my Wrimo buddies tallies. Love those visual gratifications. If you’re in the Houston area, there’s a Houston forum with information on several gatherings during the month. In fact, no matter where you reside you’ll find a regional forum that offers tips, strategies, and friendly banter. There’s even an official NaNoWriMo blog. I’ll have my official NaNoWriMo 2006 icon and graphs up on the righthand side all month.

Let me know if you sign up and spend a little time over at my Wrimo blog.

Enjoy these posts

    Hi Vikk!
    I’m working on my first NaNoWriMo as well. I’ve decided to finally get this story out of my head that I started trying to write two years ago. It’s a middle grade novel.
    Do you, by any chance, know any good books for writing middle grade novels? Now that I’m into it, I’m realizing how hard it is, and how little I truly understand about novel writing. Suddenly, all those dusty books on my shelf about writing fiction are starting to jump out at me — begging to be reread and analyzed.
    Any advice from a seasoned YA novelist? :)
