Why You Should Write a Book in June
JuNoWriMo is our spin off of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) that takes place in June, challenging you to write 50,000 words in thirty days. In the past two years, JuNoWriMo has inspired hundreds of writers to get their books written, including myself. June is the perfect month to stop procrastinating and get that book written.
Why should you write a book in June? Here’s one reason.
N is for Nonfiction
NaNoWriMo has several rules besides the 50K. You have to write a novel and you have to begin it in November (in other words, you can’t work on something you’ve already started). That’s fine – I’m a fan of and participant in NaNoWriMo. But with JuNoWriMo the rules are a little more flexible. We just want you to write that 50K, we don’t care what it is.
You can use June to finish a book you’re half way through. You can work on a collection of short stories or novellas. You can jump back and forth between different projects. You can even write a nonfiction work.
The whole purpose is to simply get words written, in whatever form you choose.
It’s Your Turn
JuNoWriMo 2014 is going to be bigger and better than ever, so don’t miss this opportunity to write that book. I dare you to write 50,000 words in June. If you accept my challenge, know that you won’t be in it alone. You’ll be writing alongside hundreds of other authors who are going for the exact same thing, and that’s the best way to write. It’s gonna be stinkin’ awesome.
