More November Writing Sprees

If you’re ready to write your wrist off in November, but a novel just isn’t your thing, consider these options:

NaBloPoMo

According to sponsor BlogHer, National Blog Post Month, “is a bloggy response to book writing’s NaNoWriMo.”

The goal is to blog for blogging’s sake, once a day. BlogHer has a sign-up page and offers blogging prompts to get you typing. Sign up by 11 p.m. EST on Nov. 5, and you’ll even have a chance to win prizes if you’ve been blogging daily.

The Naked Writer Project

Got more than enough work on your plate in November (and a minivan-full of relatives arriving for Thanksgiving)? Do you just like to watch?

No judgment here!

Writer Silvia Hartmann has exposed her entire creative process for readers who’d like to see a novel-in-progress. My Social Media Club Editorial Board buddy, the awesome Syed M. Raza, clued me in to The Naked Writer Project.  Hartmann is using social media (mainly Facebook, as well as Twitter) to alert readers when she’s on Google Drive, writing the next section of her novel, a fantasy fiction called The Dragon Lords.

Hartmann got her title from reader suggestions – and she’s used the Google Drive platform to solicit feedback as she goes along, so the novel continually evolved for Naked Writer Project participants.

  1. Hi Rita,

    Thanks for your comment!

    I love some of the NaBloPoMo prompts and will probably do several of them at the end of the month. Not sure I can commit to writing a blog post a day, though…but, trying them out at a party sounds like a great idea!

  2. Hi Vickie,

    Thanks for the heads up on more November writing opportunities.

    I printed the NaBloPoMo writing prompts and they are wonderful. Very thought-provoking. They’d be good ice-breaker topics at a party too!
