Summer is almost over, and at my library job we are getting ready for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Not sure what NaNoWriMo is?
National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel during the thirty days of November. Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world register to write 50,000 words of a brand-new novel. You can find out more about NaNoWriMo here.
Last year, our library published this interview with author Jill Weatherholt, whose Whispering Slopes series began as a NaNoWriMo challenge. This year, we are looking for more published authors whose novels began with NaNoWriMo. You can be indie, self-published or traditionally published – we want to hear from you!
If you fit into this group and want to share your story, email me a firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

It’s hard to believe NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. I hope your followers will give it a try, Barbara. Thanks for the mention!
I hope so too – thanks for participating in our interview last year. We will be sharing it again this year! 🙂
I haven’t had any novels published
Not yet but it could happen!
Thanks for the in invitation, Barbara. Fiction is not my genre and I’m working on two non-fiction projects. Maybe another time.
I think there’s a nonfiction category for NaNoWriMo – maybe you can check it out some time.
Great idea. I am not one of those authors but will definitely enjoy the articles.
Nice! I’ll be sure to share!
Sadly, I can’t participate in NaNoWriMo because of my job. I do know authors who do participate in this though so I shall share this post on Facebook for you.
Thanks so much, Robbie!
I have read and heard about NaNoWriMo for years. This might be the year to try it!
It’s a lot of fun. I used to do it during the summer on my own, but last year I did it during November. It’s really fun to do it when everyone else is tapping away!
I’ll give it a try. The warm up exercises start this week.
I know – isn’t that great? It’s nice when you know of others who are doing it 🙂
I won’t be doing NaNo this year, but I shared your post on social media, Barbara.
Many thanks, Teri. Were any of your books the result of an earlier NaNoWriMo? I think you’d make a great interviewee!
They weren’t. I tend to be a slow writer – but I’d sure love to crank out that many words in a month!
It’s pretty fun when you don’t have anything at stake. It’s energizing!
Enjoy NaNoWriMo and all of its activities!
Hi Barbara. I’m seriously considering doing NaNoWriMo this year, to write the first draft of a sequel to my unpublished novel. It worked well for me back when I wrote the first draft of Calmer Secrets, so why not?
Oh that’s great – and if Calmer Secrets began during NaNoWriMo, would you like to be interviewed? I hope so! 🙂
