Writers! We Challenge You to NaNoWriMo


Works by Garry Gay, snehit, WinonaCookie, & waxyfrog

We were just reminded over here at Redbubble Community Curators HQ, that National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo), starts this week. Several of us on the Community team with a pile of unfinished stories or novel plans gathering dust in a corner somewhere, were inspired to sign on this year, and we thought our writers on the site might want to join us.

Nothing like a challenge to give a little extra motivation. So here’s the plan: each week the month of November, we’ll offer a NaNoWriMo-related task for you to do which will also serve as your entry requirements. You’ll just have to email proof that you completed the task to community@redbubble.com and then be entered into a random drawing to win a different great prize every week!

We’ll post the new weekly challenge each week, at end of the day on Wednesday here on the blog. You’ll have until the following Wednesday at 5pm PST to submit your entry for that week, and we’ll choose and announce that week’s winner on Thursdays.

Your first challenge is simple. Follow the instructions below:

Week 1: Get Going, Get Registered!
-Entry: prove to us that you’re registered on NaNoWritMo by emailing us

Now sharpen those pencils, crack those fresh notebooks, or boot up that computer…we can’t wait to see what you create!

Also, be sure to check out NaNoWriMo’s features for participants. You can join your Regional chapter and attend in-person meetups, get tips and advice in the forums, donate to the non-profit funds, and read inspiring blogs by NaNoWriMo staff.
