Join the NaNoWriMo Writing Marathon!

Writing Marathon

From Wednesday, April 10 through Sunday, April 14, we’re running a Writing Marathon! It’s a focused burst of creativity—daily structured hours for whatever you’re working on (or should be working on) right now.

To help you reach the finish line, we'll provide two challenges—a writing one and a community one—each day. You can find them on our Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, and we'll update them daily on this page

Today's challenges

  • Writing Challenge: Work on your draft for just 20 minutes! That’s less time than it takes to take a shower. Or watch an episode of The Dragon Prince. Or fall down a Wikipedia hole while you’re researching a minor character’s backstory. Find a 20-minute chunk of time today to push forward for the next leg.

  • Community Challenge: When you’ve finished your jog, cheer on the community! Make a fun marathon sign—or even just a Post-It note—to encourage your fellow writers. Post it on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the #NaNoWriMoThon hashtag, and tag a friend who could use some writing cheer. (We'll repost our favorites, too.)

Find more details and all the daily challenges here!

Ready, set, write!
