Before NaNoWriMo 2017 kicks off, we are joined by Cambridge Municipal Liaison Ian Rennie to talk all about the annual 50k novel writing challenge. National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short, sees hundreds of thousands of people all over the world attempt to write a 50,000 word novel during the 30 days of November. Participation is free and open to anyone who wants to spend the month writing. Local groups organise everything from online morale-boosting chats to in-person write-ins at cafes, libraries and venues all around the globe. 'Cambridge Wrimos' is the local Cambridge group for participation in NaNoWriMo, setting up planning events, social events and parties before, during, and after November, which Ian helps to organise and run.
Ian fills us in on what it's like to take on the NaNoWriMo challenge, and why it's so much fun to get involved. He also gives some tips for anyone thinking of taking part for 2017. Both Ian and Becks will be attempting NaNo this year, so do seek them out on Twitter for encouragement and advice if you want to join us and scores of others writing a novel this November!
Time for Cakes and Ale, a podcast featuring geeky ramblings with Becks & Eeson, and also home to "Time for Cherry Pie and Coffee", a Twin Peaks podcast, and "The Tally Ho", a Prisoner podcast.
