If Not Now?


There seems to be so much happening this month as far as writing is concerned. It’s a good month to be a writer, isn’t it?

First off, there’s NaNoWriMo – one month of furious writing and hopefully, your own novel at the end of it. Not too late to register, if you haven’t. Here’s how Vidya Sury has gone about planning her month – she’s going to Eat.Sleep.Write.NaNoWriMo. Also read Margaret Nystrom’s thirty tips to motivate and inspire you to write through November. Good luck to those of you undertaking this.

“The scariest moment is always just before you start.”
by Stephen King

Then, some of us registered for GrammoWriMo, which I mentioned here. If you’ve registered, you should have got the date and chapter you’re supposed to contribute.

On Write Tribe, a Nonet prompt, a 55-fiction prompt and a 100 Words on Saturday prompt (coming up tomorrow) – and that’s just for this week! If you haven’t yet tried writing the nonet and the 55-fiction – then what’s stopping you? 🙂

Sugandha Agarwal, a member of Write Tribe has a linky open for ‘Blog for A Cause’ on her blog. If you’ve blogged for a cause recently or plan to do so, please add your link to her post – the linky will be open until 7 November.

Just when you think it’s all over, I want to share something else I came across today – Write Non-Fiction in November – #NaNonFiWriMo

There are some awareness causes too that I will be sharing with you in the days ahead. Nothing like using our blogs to get awareness messages out.

“Nothing that I can do will change the structure of the universe. But maybe, by raising my voice I can help the greatest of all causes – goodwill among men and peace on earth.” ~ Albert Einstein

So let’s have ourselves a wonderfully wordy November, shall we? If not now, then when? 🙂

  1. I have signed up for NaBloPoMo again and will be attempting to post each day in the month of November. Wish me luck as I write, write, write….try new things, try old things, and attempt to stay inspired for the month. ♥


  2. Exciting! I wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo myself but I don’t think I am ready yet! Maybe next year but I am going to check out blog for a cause and some other prompts from here! Good inspiration, Corinne!!
