Writer's Life, Bootcamp
It’s that time of the year with hot cocoa, warm stews, and the stress of writing 50,000 words in 31 days.


SavvyAuthors is holding our annual NaNovember event to help YOU get 50k words down on the page.

This year we’ve decided to change things up. It’s still grueling. It’s still tough. And yes, there’s still no whining, but we’ve decided to focus on the most important point of NaNovember—meeting those word counts and finishing with a manuscript containing a cohesive story.

Recruits will now record their own daily words counts and watch their overall count grow on an individual leaderboard. We’re ditching team points or bonus points and all that stuff so you can spend your NaNo time getting the right words down to tell your story. Your Nano Goal:

  • WIN with your 50,000 words
  • And REALLY WIN with a useable story in those words!
The writing assignments will be more focused and more useful to achieving the end goal—publishing your book. Each week we will have helpful assignments that hopefully get those creative juices going and keep you focused on our Two Goals. If you want to complete the assignments then go right ahead! And if you don’t want to, that works, too. The assignments are just for you, no points for any of them.

This NaNo earn points by writing!
Because that's the point, right?​

Each week’s assignment will focus on the challenges we all face during that week honed by our MANY years of NaNo wins and losses.

There will be an open forum for recruits to chat about their goals, share their successes, and shout for help. Recruits will be encouraged to motivate and help each other reach the end goal. Participate as much or as little as you feel like but know that we are behind you ready to help in any way.

If you like the idea of being part of a small group of like-minded or genre-oriented authors? We’ve also got an area where members can join a small group to cheer each other on and help each other work through the writing woes. Each recruit that chooses to belong to a group will still be responsible for posting their own daily word counts.

If you love all the bootcamp extras, we will still have a forum devoted to brainstorming, plotting help, the watercooler for general chat, and yes, of course, sprints. Please contact us if you’d like to hold a sprint (or two or more!)

This year, we want YOU to choose how YOU navigate NaNovember.

  • Are you the type of writer that puts their head down and types the month away while keeping motivated through posting and seeing other recruit’s word counts?
  • Or are you the type of writer that prefers a small group setting to help motivate you?
We’ve got all the options.

We are making NaNovember 2018 all about the word counts and the words that capture the best story you can write. We hope you will join us!
