Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2016
It's that time of year again, when everyone starts panicking as NaNoWriMo approaches ever closer!
NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month, which occurs every year in November. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days (November 1-30). This is my 5th year participating and I'm just as excited now as I was my first year.
This year things are a little different for me since I started using a Bullet Journal (BuJo) and will be using it for NaNoWriMo. Here are a few free printable documents that you can use to track your word count.
Below is a 100,000 word goal counter and a 50,000 word goal counter. I use this form by writing down my total on each day to see if I'm on track. I keep it front and center on my desk to give me encouragement.
This year I wanted to plan my novel (I'm normally a pantser), so I started a few pages of inspiration to get my wheels turning.
Here is what my tracker looks like. I decided to have two pages, one where I can write down and track the number of words I write each day and one that I can color a book in each time I write 1,000 words. It's a little way for me to reward myself.
Here are some other pages I have in my BuJo:
Here are the pages for my novel planning. Sorry for the black marks, but I have to keep things top secret ;-)
I hope this helps some of you or at least gives you some inspiration for your own writer BuJos. Feel free to message me with questions!
