Inside the Writer's Soul Podcast by M Khan

Should You Participate in NaNoWriMo? | #5


In this week’s episode of the Inside the Writer’s Soul podcast, we’ll be talking about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and whether you may want to take part in it. I’ll share my story about writing a novel in a month and why I can’t do it anymore, and I’ll share 5 tips if you do decide to participate.

“For me, NaNoWriMo is just not realistic. I know myself, I know my schedule, I understand the time that I have in November between work and family commitments and I know I won’t finish writing a complete book. Being realistic is accepting that I can’t finish the book in a month, and I am absolutely, completely 100% okay with that.”

In this episode:

  • What is #NaNoWriMo?
  • Reasons you may (or may not) want to participate in #NaNo, plus 5 tips if you do
  • The story shared in this episode: How I used to participate and why I don’t anymore.
