NaNoWriMo and Something Extra

Happy November! You know what that means! It’s National Novel Writing Month again! Are you in? I’ve got a couple of suggestions to boost your productivity and achieve your writing aspirations, and other social media news that’s fun.

NaNoWriMo has received some criticism over the years from detractors, but most of those objections are, frankly, kind of snooty. When you create your free profile at nanowrimo.org, you’re signing up to be part of an encouraging writing blitz. Writing is a lonely business, so it’s nice to be part of a community focused on getting a first draft done (or at least much closer to the finish line).

I like their metrics best. It’s easy to log your daily word count and track your progression. Track anything (weight, time, word count), and you will make more progress toward your goals than if you’d gone all loosey-goosey.

I’m doing something extra this year.

I’m looking for more interaction with readers and other writers, so you’ll find me in two new places.

Every day I post to TikTok about the writing life. It’s this blog, but faster. I’ve got productivity hacks, book recommendations, my latest news, my struggles with Amazon, and an ongoing series on what I wish I had known when I started publishing independently twelve years ago.

Come visit me in my blanket fort

on TikTok @therealchazzchute.

But wait! There’s more!

For the month of November, each day at 10:30 a.m. EDT, I’ll be hosting writing sprints for two hours. Between sprints, I’ll be glad to chat and answer questions. We’re going to get a lot done.

Find me on Twitch.

I am RChazzChute.

Today will be my first time streaming on Twitch, so come on over and let’s get some momentum rolling.

~ Find links to all my books at AllThatChazz.com. I write suspenseful, twisty, and twisted apocalyptic epics with heart and killer crime thrillers with muscle. Enjoy!

  1. I’m not doing NaNo this year (for the first time in a very long time) but I will be writing to hit 50k on various projects in November and will join you and everyone else in spirit. Looking forward to your Twitch and I will be on writing with you!
