Every year millions of people challenge themselves to write a novel in a month and then actually do it – the even is called NaNoWriMo.
What is NaNoWriMo
NaNoWriMo is a charity that raises over a million US Dollars each year to support enabling creative expression through writing. they do this by challenging people to write a novel (yes an entire novel) in just one month.
Official NaNoWriMo write-ins
Despite certain groups locally making a big noise about running NaNoWriMo events, I strongly urge you to check the Kent ML section of the NaNoWriMo website to find official and recognised NaNoWriMo events.
Currently, there is only one official Thanet NaNoWriMo event hosted by Helen J Perry. The writing event takes place each Sunday between 10:30 and 16:00 at the Turner Contemporary cafe – Rendezvous.
At the write in, writers come together and, well, write. The sense of not writing alone can help you to stay motivated and just get something written.
NaNoWriMo support at Thanet Creative
If you are taking part in NaNoWriMo, you can bet your fellow Thanet Creatives are too. Why not bring along some of what you have been writing and share it?
If you are looking for low-key write ins during the month our lovely group will be more than happy to talk about setting one or two up. Remember there is already the official write ins each Sunday and on other days if you have access to transport out of Thanet. But if you want to meet up for a casual coffee and some writing company, we can do that too.
