Word Missouri: Inside a NaNoWriMo Write-In
I’ve never done National Novel-Writing Month. It’s bad enough trying to get me to write something over about 10,000 words. I’m too flighty. I did write a novel over the course of a year once, but it was in high school, I wrote it in journal form for an AP English class, and it was about a bunch of cartoon characters fighting Republicans in multiple dimensions, so I don’t know if that counts.
But a lot of my friends take part in NaNoWriMo. I know this because I get their Facebook updates. They mostly view this as an independent project. But for some people, NaNoWriMo is a social occasion. This is the case here in Columbia, where a group of friends meet up throughout the month for write-ins at a local photography studio. They’re all pretty close – some more than others, as you’ll see. Listen here or head over to KBIA to hear the full story.
