The day has finally come! After eleven months of waiting, it’s officially NaNoWriMo! For those of you who weren’t with us during our NaNoPrep, we’ve got tons of great resources for you:
–What NaNoWriMo is and why you should do NaNoWriMo this year
–How to set up your space
–Tips from past NaNo winners
–Software and Tech to help you meet your goals
–Ultimate NaNo Playlists
How are you feeling about your goals? Excited? Nervous? Ready to go? We want to hear from you! Tell us about your project and what you’re excited or nervous about in the comments. We’ll be bringing you tons more resources throughout the month, so let us know how we can help you reach your goals!
This week will be really fun, but many of us will run into writers’ block at some point over the next thirty days. No matter what you find yourself struggling with, you should know you won’t be alone. There are a bunch of us from Riveted taking part in NaNo this year, so we’ll be writing about our experience, struggles, frustrations and joys throughout the month! We’ll also be reporting in via Snapchat and Twitter, so make sure you follow @RivetedLit on your platform of choice.
As a special kickoff to NaNo, we’re super excited to have motivational cell phone and desktop wallpapers for you to use all November long (and after!). Download the perfect mantra to help keep you on track here:
