Distracted Writer Video: Why Do NaNoWriMo?

Hi, writing friends —

If you’re busy starting on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this week, close this browser and go get to work! You can watch this in December!

If you’re not currently doing NaNoWriMo, have you considered it? Maybe heard the fuss and wondered whether it would really help you with your writing? Check out my take on NaNo and other intense, aggressive short-term writing sprints. [Spoiler alert: I’m in favor of them, for many reasons].

I’m not participating in NaNoWriMo this year; my writing schedule has me mid-project at the moment. But I am in the middle of drafting a 90,000 word novel in a short period (seven weeks and change), so you could say I’m getting into the spirit.

This is the first of what I hope will be semi-regular DW videos, in which I share my take on how to power through obstacles and take your writing to the next level. That sounds like an ad for fitness equipment, doesn’t it?

Okay: in which I explain the many, many ways I have fallen on my face while pursuing this career, and a little of what I am learning in the process. I hope you’ll find these videos helpful – my goal is to keep them fun, informative, and (most importantly) under 10 minutes.

If you have suggestions for topics you’d like me to address, or questions you want me to attempt to answer while you point and laugh from the comfort of your living room, hit me up with them in the comments or contact me at mj AT mjpullen DOT com.

Thanks for watching. Enjoy!
