Everyone likes to win, right? The number one reason for not starting something is fear of failure. We don’t want to seem incompetent so we don’t try. Or we make fun of it because we secretly feel like we can’t measure up.
Well, allow me to let you in on a little secret. Ready? Here goes. Even if you write one sentence this month of November, you’ve already won.
How does a novel get written, after all? One word at a time. One word after another, after another, after another, all the way to “The End.”
But even if you only write halfway to your goal in NaNo, you’ve written thousands of words. That’s thousands into your novel or whatever project you’re working on. That’s reason enough to join NaNo.
Letters & Lights and the proud sponsors of NaNoWriMo do you one better, however. Did you know that every National Novel Writing Month winner receives “winner goodies”?
And we all know that goodies are a great thing to motivate you to get that book finally written–or at least 50K of it. Each year winners are offered a special assortments of goodies, all pertaining to the writing craft. Usually these are discounts on software such as Scrivener and Storyist, or Timeline software Aeon. There is also the possibility of a discount from BookBaby or other self-publishers.
When you validate your NaNo novel, you thus get all sorts of bonuses. And it’s almost time to start. So get over to NaNoWriMo and sign up before you’re too late and you let another November pass you by!
