Workshop: NaNoWriMo- 50,000 Words in A Month with Par Ramey
If you’ve heard of National Novel Writers Month, but never tried it (or are hearing about it for the first time), then come join the Athens Writers Association for NaNoWriMo — with a twist!
The always awesome Par Ramey has volunteered to lead a workshop on July 22nd (6:00pm – 8:00pm) at Lisa’s Writing Den (297 Prince Avenue Suite 15, Athens, GA) on the National Writer’s Movement – NaNoWriMo. A group of us have decided to ready our skills for the National and International NaNoWriMo Writer’s Challenge in November by attempting to do a pseudo ‘write off to readiness’ – writing nonsense for the 31 days of August with rules to be shared at the workshop in July.
I’ve always admired the people who do NaNoWriMo but I’ve never gotten involved myself. This just sounds too cool to pass up though, so I be gearing down and buckling up with Par and the others to bring NaNoWriMo to Athens for August. If you want to leap forward in both skill and confidence, then writing a whole lot is a great way to go.
Get serious (about nonsense).
This is gonna be fun!
