WNFIN isn’t a contest. No one judges you. No one looks over your shoulder or counts your words. That said, sometimes it’s nice to know who is participating…or to add your name to a list of participants so you feel you are being held accountable for starting and finishing your project in the allotted time–30 days.
If you would like to add your name to the list of WNFIN/NaNonFiWriMo 2011 participants, you can do so by adding a comment here.
Here’s what we suggest you include in your comment:
- what you are writing about or the nature of your nonfiction project (actual describe it for us if you like!)
- how many words you plan to write each day or week and your final word-count goal
Then, come back at month’s end and let everyone know if you reached your goal. You can do that here.
Nina Amir will be reading all the comments; she’ll reply if she can. (She gets busy around October 30 and then doesn’t have as much time to comment as she gears up to edit and publish 30 days worth of blog posts. Please understand and don’t take it personally if you don’t get a reply when you sign in.)
Please do report in at the end with a status update. This is a great accountability mechanism that helps you complete your project. And Nina might, again, leave you a comment in return or mention you and your project in follow-up posts if you do something fabulous like:
- land a magazine assignment
- sign a contract with an agent
- secure a book deal
- self-publish a book
because of work you completed during NaNonFiWriMo! (That means publicity for you, your book, your blog…) Report your final status update on this page.
And please visit the WNFIN Facebook page to chat with participants and talk bout your successes and struggles and get support and make friends!
