NaNoWriMo: N is for Non-Fiction

Hey! Are you doing National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? Follow me this month as I work through the alphabet of great writing tips, from creating ACTION to getting into the ZONE. 

Need a writing buddy? Email me at or comment in my daily posts. We can inspire each other to put down those daily word counts.  My goal this year: 5,000 words.

Aside from my Journal and this blog, I’m more of a fiction kind of kid. You know, the stories that transport readers to an imaginary world…?
And, I know NaNoWriMo stands for National NOVEL Writing Month, but there's nothing to say YOU can't write NON FICTION for your NaNoWriMo project—the object is to just get you writing. Right?

Non-fiction writing focuses on the real world and real people—like biographies, autobiographies, memoirs and documentaries. And then there’s the really boring stuff, like manuals, text books and…essays.

Don’t get me wrong, I do read non-fiction—especially biographies on some of my favourite sports heroes. But writing it? That’s going to take some practice.

Maybe after NaNoWriMo...
