#NaNoProMo - A Different Kind of Writing Challenge

Rachel Thompson - Bad Redhead Media
Rachel Thompson, originator of #MondayBlogs (which you must participate in if you have a blog and you tweet), has noticed a glaring omission in the various Nanos. There is #NaNoWriMo, held every November as an incentive to get writers to either compose that novel they've always said they wanted to write, or finish that novel they always wanted to finish. After that there is #NaNoEdMo in March, which means if you were foolish enough to take the #NaNoWriMo challenge, you now have to edit your book. But there was no month for promotion.

Rachel has corrected that omission with #NaNoProMo, a whole month of resources for writers in May. The best part is that we don't have to actually do anything. We just need to pay attention. There will be posts every day from book marketing experts, chats daily prizes, and a chance to win a 30-minute Skype call with Hugh Howey.

Take a look at Rachel's article on Medium. (Now I know what I will be doing in May, aside from aging.)

To keep to the non-profit tradition, this is all about writers: helping writers, providing resources for writers, being there for writers. So here are the ‘rules:’

There Are No Rules

No daily hours to log. No website to report in to. No badge to win or display (though I may rethink that because I know people really like that shiz).

What there will be:
