Can’t make it to an in-person write-in? Join us at a virtual one, streamed live from NaNoWriMo HQ. After all, writing is that much easier in the company of writers from around the world!
What happens at a VWI?
- We write together!
- We challenge each other to word sprints.
- We offer suggested prompts to help you find inspiration.
NaNo Word Sprints
What’s a word sprint? It’s a timed writing exercise to write as quickly as you can for a set amount of time. You can take on a suggested prompt or dare, too!
Why take part in a word sprint? To rev up your writing momentum, and get you sprinting past your inner editor.
Every week of November, a published author will take over our official Twitter account, @NaNoWriMo, to answer your questions and coach you through drafting your novel.
All tweets that come from our NaNo Coaches will be signed with the hashtag #NaNoCoach. If you want to make sure your question or thoughts make their way to your coach’s clipboard, please include #NaNoCoach in your tweet, too!
