Why You Should Write a Book in June
This month for the A to Z challenge, I’m highlighting twenty-six reasons (alphabetically, of course) 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.
Y is for Yourself
It should be obvious by now that I hope you’ll participate in JuNoWriMo. But it’s not for my benefit. I’ll have a great, successful June whether or not you join. So will the hundreds of other writers who’ve signed up. I’m saying this because I don’t want you to sign up for me. Do it for yourself.
Having a successful JuNoWriMo means forming new friendships. It means growth for yourself as a writer. It means fifty thousand new words written! Even in the worst-case scenario if you participate in JuNoWriMo and fail to meet the 50K, you’ll still gain something. Every thousand words you write is a thousand you didn’t have before. So there’s not really a way to lose, unless you don’t participate at all.
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.
Oh, and one more thing. JuNoWriMo is having a giveaway right now: sign up and you just might win a prize!
