The NaNoWriMo Project: The Wrap Up!

December 2, 2012 Posted by Dave Robison

NaNoWriMo Coat of Arms

And around the world, a great sigh of relief went up among the writers. Some sighs were followed by cheers as the words were tallied and it was revealed that the sacred count of 50,000 been reached. But whatever their word count, the writers knew they had achieved something… they had made a commitment to their story and themselves that can’t be measured in mere words.

It has been a remarkable journey these last 30 days as we followed these writers through their unique challenges of NaNoWriMo. As each of them shared their strategies and experiences, we all gleaned a wealth of insight into what it takes to reach the 50K goal. And now, with NaNoWriMo complete, we reach out to them one more time to learn how they did and what comes next.

If you’re just joining us, check out our initial interview and workshop and Halfway Followup with all four creageous (creative and courageous) members of our NaNoWriMo Team:

The NaNoWriMo Project – Halfway There

NaNoWriMo Coat of Arms

Sounds like a Bon Jovi song, doesn’t it? Ooooo, we’re halfway there… 0000OOO, livin’ on a prayer! But these four NaNoWriMo-ers aren’t relying on prayers to reach that exalted finish line of 50,000 words (although we’re certainly prayin’, cheerin’, and rootin’ for them). With only a couple weeks left, they’re applying every ounce of discipline and dedication to reach their goal.

And the challenges before them are not insignificant. Real life doesn’t take a holiday for NaNoWriMo, and that includes day jobs, academic responsibilities (tests?!), professional responsibilities, extracurricular commitments, family duties, health issues, and technical difficulties! And don’t forget holidays (Thanksgiving isn’t canceled, after all) ! This is an epic journey for our writing team and we spoke to each of them (briefly) to see how they’re doing, find out what they’ve learned so far, and hear their plans for these last two weeks.

And so we come to the conclusion, the final workshop/prep session with our four remarkable writers.  NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow and they will be joining the thousands of bold and dedicated writers who will be burning up their keyboards to crank out the 1,667 words a day required to make the 50,000 word deadline in 30 days.

We hope these discussions have helped focus or inspire some of you to word-count greatness. Check back in a few weeks… Jared and I will be touching base with each of our writers to discover how they’ve been doing, celebrating their achievements as they go and exploring the challenges they didn’t expect and how they’ve overcome them.

This is only the beginning! The prep is done… now everyone gets to GO WRITE! :)

Each year, thousands of bold and dedicated writers accept the NaNoWriMo challenge: get 50,000 words on paper in a month. This challenge has been a catalyzing moment for many writers where they discover that productive word counts are achievable. With that discovery, the ultimate goal of publication is one step closer to reality.

At The Roundtable Podcast, we support this worthy ambition wholeheartedly, and we wanted to help… so we invited four remarkable writers to gather at the table and share their own preparations for the NaNoWriMo event.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be the Roundtable without some brainstorming, so everyone dives in and helps workshop each other’s stories. This is writerly goodness, literary gold, and a NaNoWriMo preparation all rolled into one!
