JuNoWriMo Participation Announcement

Hey guys… It’s been quite a while since I posted something about what I’m doing these days. Actually I’ve been a bit busy writing the chapter-summaries of my debut novel and also organising stuff for the next month as I’m participating in JuNoWriMo.

JuNoWriMo is June Novel Writing Month, started by Becca J. Campbell and Anna Howard to have a slightly different take on a month long noveling adventure. For starters, you don’t have to write fiction (You can write creative non-fiction, so bring on the funny/meaningful memoirs or whatever else), write a new work (Did you write 5 pages last month and you can’t get going? That’s okay, write the next 50,000 words with us!), or work on all one piece (Want to write short stories? Knock out 5 of 10K words each, and you’re there!).

I love interacting with Becca on JuNoWriMo’s Fb page. She is truly awesome and most importantly always addresses all the queries.

I’m planning to get my first draft done by the end of this WriMo, so that I can publish my book by the end of this year (hopefully!)

Honesty, I like JuNo better than NaNo as it is really welcoming. Nano is also welcoming but it’s just too hyped for my taste, plus whenever I’m at the NaNo page it always reminds me that there are like, more than 10,000 other authors better than me and that ultimately leads me to underestimate my work and talent. So this year I wanna start light. So, I’m participating in JuNoWriMo which feels comparatively less crowded.

If you are also participating in JuNo then let me know through comments as I’d love to share ‘the writing enthu!’

If you want to know more about JuNoWriMo then visit their Website, Facebook page or Twitter handle.

Here’s my ‘first time WriMo badge’:

  1. It’s cool that Becca and Anna decided to found a group similar to NaNoWriMo. Is this the first year JuNoWriMo is happening? From the website, it sounds similar to Camp NaNoWriMo, which happens in April (already done for this year) and July–this could be an option for people who aren’t quite ready to start writing their book in June.

  2. I didn’t know about this. And now I want to do it. But I’m not sure I have the time next month. I have plenty of writing projects that need a swift kick to get going and done. Hm. Maybe. Anyway, good luck to you. 🙂 I’m sure your fingers will fly and the words will flow like a river. Ooh, I’m getting all poetic. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot Phoenix! And yea, you do sound poetic… hehe! It’s great to exchange comments with you, as always… I’ve been away from the online world for quite somedays now… but now I’m feeling better ☺
      I do hope you can take out some time and think about participating in JuNo… As you’re already a NaNo winner it’s going to a piece of cake for you… Though I’ll need your help (a lot) as you were a winner and I am an ameture… 😊
      Have a wonderful day dear!!!

  4. So glad you’re joining us, Heena. I know what you mean about comparing yourself to other writers on the NaNoWriMo site. Please, don’t. There are people of all levels there as there are here. Some people just write faster; some people are more careful and though they make fewer words, they have a “more ready” story; some do both; some neither…. It’s a mixed bag, and you have a place in it with your words and -your- writing style.

    So just enjoy the writing, the process and the rush when it comes. Even if you don’t make that magical 50K, you’re still getting words written, because every new word written is a victory. The “winning” is just an extra.

    • Thanks a lot Eden! I’m feeling so much better now 🙂
      I guess, I’ll do just what you said (I was taking a lot of pressure earlier, but now I’m gonna focus on enjoying it!)
      Thanks again! 😀
      Have a great day!
