Writing Prompt – Thursday 29th October

Creativity is definitely contagious! As the nights grow longer and darker think about taking part in NaNoWriMo to inject a bit of brightness. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month which happens during November. The goal is to write 50,000 words in the month. You can, if you wish, join the world-wide site which enables you to record your progress. 1,666 words a day will net you 50,000 words by the end of the month. (Rest assured, you don’t have to show your work to anyone so you can feel free to experiment on the page.)

However, there is nothing to stop you doing this on your own and your end goal doesn’t have to be a novel. It could be a poetry or flash fiction collection or you could aim to draft a short story each day.

Any new words created will give you something to edit at a later date. It is a good time to explore that idea that has been dancing just out of reach. Remember to reward yourself for the effort you put in.
