NaNoWriMo According to Smudge MacRuff and a Printable Word Count Calendar

10 October 2021

Hi y’all,

Here’s no frills NaNoWriMo calendar. After you print it out you can add stickers or washi tape. 🙂 I think there’s enough space for you to write your word count beneath the word count number to keep you on track. I hope you find inspiration from the forums, meeting writers from all over the world, and being inspired to write the story of your heart. NaNo is supposed to be fun, not a drudge. Should you persevere at the end you’ll have a draft of a manuscript, a big portion of editing, forward progress on whatever you’re writing.

NaNo is all about getting the story down. Editing comes later.

Smudge Alpin MacRuff wants to help writers with NaNo so here’s his POV on what happens when you undertake the month of November’s literary abandon.

Think about what you want to write. Be sure you like it enough to write on the story everyday.
After you join NaNoWriMo get some writing friends to join you. Friends always make everything more fun!
Stay focused. Don’t quit! Quick, word sprints!
Why aren’t you cooperating story? I give you the evil eye. I do not like you anymore.
You see these shreds manuscript…that’s what will happen to you if you mess with me again.
Swift kick in the writing pants. I can do this because I’m the Boss!
You did it! Do something nice for yourself. All that hard work was worth it.

All the best writing vibes and positive thoughts to everyone! Love, Tambra and Smudge
