NaNoWriMo – Coming Soon!


Hello there!

  • Is there a writer in you?
  • Have you ever felt you should try your hands on writing a novel/or any work, give it a shot and explore?
  • Or are you already a writer?
  • Does writing make you frantically happy?
  • Do you already have your next project lined out?
  • Or do you want to just write?

What else can be better than writing it along with the world? Come in and be part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).

What is NaNoWriMo?
It is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to promote writing and creativity.

What is the Target and Timeline?
The writing begins from November 01 spanning for the entire month (ends Nov 30th midnight 11.59pm). One needs to tackle the writing goal of 50,000 words.

Yes, 50K. 50,000 is definitely a huge number but if seen as 1667 words per day, definitely doable. Weekends, constant support and motivation from NaNoWriMo and buddies, pep talks, lots of resource materials and daily writing sprints make this target exciting and easier.

However if you have your own target, there is also NaNoWriMo Rebel where one can set individual writing targets.

What can I Write?
Anything! Anything that makes you happy and you want to write. It’s not about the bothering and worries of editing and giving the final touch. It’s about writing and just it.

So, What Next?
Are your words ready to celebrate? Do you have a project? Hope in! Register at National Novel Writing Month.  It’s about cherishing that write-cravings and dedicating the month November to write, write and write more.

What after Registration?
Select the appropriate region from where you are writing, look out the regional forum for introduction and other threads, create a writing project, make some new buddies and get started! The writing officially begins from November 01.

There has been no activity in last two months and hence this summary post.

Here is what IBMC is:

  • The IBMC is a series of ten tasks. All the ten tasks are different, to prove the versatility in the blogger.
  • The blogger can start the challenge at any point of time but the constraint is that it has to be completed within 15 days of the start. So, plan well before starting.
  • There are 10 challenges and 15 days to complete (in other words, you have up to five “buffer” days).
  • One cannot complete more than three tasks on the same day.
  • The tasks have to be taken up in the same order as they are numbered.
  • Every task is associated with a logo which will have to be used along with the prompt.
  • On completing all the challenges, the IBMC logo can be added to your blog.

100000 Hits


Those numbers sure call for a ‘Happy Dance’. The blogging journey began on 16 July 2014 with the post Is this Life All About? – A New Old. The blog today has 488 posts, 101 pages, 12,501 comments and 3434 followers. Thank you, you kind fellow bloggers and friends. 100000 hits is huge!

In the play of zeros,
In the play of ones,
Nil to full,
Complete to nothing,
Perfections are a disorder,
Nothingness unescapable.

 

Then,
Amidst,
Zeros and ones,
Comes celebrating, ‘the happiness’!

hooray
