National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo)is upon us!
And if you had planned to successfully write 50,000 words for your novel in the month of November, you should be on word 5,001 by the end of the day to stay on track!
So whether you’re successfully completing this annual challenge, have some catching up to do, or don’t know what the heck NaNoWriMo even is…
I have an alternative, less intense writing challenge for you. And the benefits are wonderful.
#30Layers30Days Writing Challenge
If you’re a writer of color and frequent the Instagramming space, you’ve more-than-likely have heard of the nurturing writer GG Rene Hill on the platform.
Every year she posts writing prompts for you to write from everyday in November called #30Layers30Days (you can read all the prompts for this year here). Her goal is for you to begin to develop a writing routine.
Why You Should Develop A Writing Routine
Writing has always been something that helped me release, create, and cope. And after having a long stint with writer’s block I signed up for one of GG Rene’s writing workshops called Writing the Layers.
All of her guidance and self-reflection prompts really opened me up!
And if you’re really digging her work during this month’s challenge, you can get her workbook filled with prompts, encouragement, and pages to color. 🙂
Creating a writing routine can help you learn, reflect, and accept yourself as well as discover truths about your life and the world around you.
Writing can create an insightful transformation in your life and is a source of creativity (which is always fun and telling).
