What is Preptober?
Preptober is when people share their stories via social media posts through mood boards or tweets (or whatever you feel like doing) or that they’re planning on participating in NaNoWriMo during November. This is also the month where most people create their outlines.
What is NaNoWriMo?
NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month is when you write 50,000 words in a month. The program has a young writer’s program for anyone who’s in school or wants to set their own word count goal.
Teachers can also create a NaNoWriMo classroom for their classes to assign the program as a graded project.
Alright, now that you know what it is; here’s what I’m doing!
What I’m Doing
So for those of you who don’t know, this is my 10th year doing NaNoWriMo!
I’m working on a modern-day Little Mermaid retelling that I’m tentatively calling “Silenced Salaams.” Below, is a pic of my mood board:
I also got a writing bujo notebook from Etsy that I’m going to use to help me plot the book.
Is anyone interested in a post on NaNoWriMo essentials?
Question for the writers: Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? I actually made a discord group and if you’d like the link to that please feel free to let me know in the comments below!
