November 7th – NaNoWriMo

Keep on Keepin' On

Today’s an eventful day at Chasing Dreams Publishing. We posted earlier with the cover reveal of After the End – a collection of short stories that will be released in January 2017.

What does this have to do with NaNoWriMo?

Well, a year ago, Sharon (the author) and I did not know each other. We were strangers, participating in an insane one month long writing marathon. We met because we were fortunate enough to join our WhatsApp writing group; the Jozi Wrimos.

The group has been running for a year now, and a lot of our members are working on establishing themselves as published authors. It hasn’t always been easy for everyone – life interferes, doubt kicks in, and it’s a challenge to keep writing when the excitement of NaNo wears off.

Whether or not you intend to continue writing beyond November, is your choice. I hope you will. But for now, you’ve signed up for a month of insanity and that means something. It means you have something to say, that you believe in your story, and above all, it means you are a writer.

Wear it proudly.
