November is Academic Writing Month, which now exists in several different forms, including:
National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, involves pledging to write 50,000 words in 30 days.
NaPoWriMo (“30 poems in 30 days”)
AcWritMo (hashtag #acwrimo), an informal network of academic writers.
And if those alternatives don’t appeal to you, Helen Sword is inviting writers to join her in November for her 30-day Writing with Pleasure Challenge. This free video series offers a very different kind of writing challenge, prompting you to write with pleasure for at least 25 minutes a day every day for 30 days.
If you make it through the full series of 30 daily prompts, you’ll have a lot of fun along the way — but if you miss a few days here and there, that’s okay too. This exercise is all about finding pleasure in writing, which sometimes means taking a day off from writing.
You can sign up for the 30-day of Writing with Pleasure Challenge using this registration link. Encourage other writers you know to join the fun!
