NaNoWriMo 2013 – The best prescription for fear of writing
NaNoWrimo 2013 is the single most effective cure for writer’s block. Hands down. Everything else is swept away except you and the keyboard. It’s all about the words, words that appear on computer screens and across pages around the world.
Nanowrimo 2013 goes global
This is more than a national writing event. NaNoWriMo is global. Check out the Nanowrimo regions directory. Africa contains 3,500+ writers gearing up for NaNoWrimo 2013. China, alone, is showing nearly 3,000 writers who have signed up. The Philippines has over 4,500. Not to be outdone, Austrailia’s Sydney boasts 5,000+ participants. In Texas Houston alone is approaching 7,000 writers ready to hit the keyboard at one minute past midnight November 1st. Those are incredible numbers. As of today, the website participation is at 144,227.
Why join the November writing marathon – NaNoWriMo 2013?
There are many reasons why a writer, you even, might want to sign up for National November Writing Month. Perhaps you have a deadline approaching and you haven’t put a word to the page. Maybe writing has been a dream and you want to take that first step into making it a reality. Or maybe it’s because you simply don’t have anything else to do, somewhat similar to how the whole NaNoWriMo phenomenon began:
“Because we wanted to make noise. Because we didn’t have anything better to do. And because we thought that, as novelists, we would have an easier time getting dates than we did as non-novelists.” – Chris Baty, founder NaNoWriMo
Maybe you’re creativity has dried up or you have a stark fear of the blank page. Whatever the reason, this annual event has an uncanny way of unleashing masses of creative power that results in mountains of pages and streams of words around the world.
In one week writers around the world will be firing up their computers, opening composition books, and gathering pads and paper to participate in this wildly successful writing event. The question is, quite simply, will you?
The world is a lot more fun when you approach it with an exuberant imperfection. ~ Chris Baty, founder NaNoWriMo
