Nanowrimo 2022 starts tomorrow, with writers spending November getting as many words down as they can.
For the past couple of years, my local Nano group have been meeting up over Zoom, but this year we're doing a mix of in-person and online meetings, and I can't wait to see everyone again and hopefully meet some new writers.
I'm pretty sure I won't clock up the 50,000 word goal again this year (I only managed about 20-25,000 words last year) but any words down on the page are better than none and I love the community spirit of Nano. If you are starting a new project and you're feeling a bit panicked that you're not prepped enough, I've got some quick ways to get to know your characters before you start your Nano project.
I'm cheating a bit this year as I'm mid-project, so I'll be continuing with this instead of starting something new for Nano 2022. I'll be posting quick progress updates on Instagram and, if I have time (!!!) more in-depth here on the blog.
If you're taking part - best of luck. It's completely crazy but so much fun!
