...... as I was reminded at the weekend, when I went for lunch with some friends and saw that the table next to us had been reserved for a NaNoWriMo "Write-In" group!
Yes, November is here again.
Some of us will be taking up the annual NaNoWriMo challenge, but some of us may feel that we just don't have enough time, headspace or energy to turn out 50,000 words or more in 30 days.
If that is the case for you, and you fancy something a bit more personal and tailor-made, or just not quite so much pressure, then why don't you take us up this year on our annual Cafe Aphra November Challenge?
Here's how it works:
YOU get to choose what you want your writing challenge to be for this month.
You set your own goal, whether it is a daily wordcount, an overall wordcount to reach by the end of the month, or simply a writing project you want to get FINISHED by 30th November.
Sometimes we all need deadlines to motivate us to get it done, and here is a perfect opportunity. :)
What do YOU want to achieve in your writing by the end of November?
If you feel like taking part and fancy having a bit of support along the way, post your personal Cafe Aphra November Challenge as a comment below, and we will chivvy you and cheer you along every step of your journey!
Keep us posted as to your progress and we can all support each other.
Good luck and good writing!
