NaNoWriMo Prep: Writing Tools

Creative Writing Meetup


We explore a variety of writing tools to help you through the 30 days of the National Novel Writing Month challenge in November. We'll discuss Scrivener and other writing platforms, writing tools, research tools, tips, techniques, and tools specific to NaNoWriMo to help you when you get stuck or need to work distraction-free.

There is no one way to do NaNoWriMo. You may write on a single novel or non-fiction piece, or write many. We explore the possibilities to help you figure out what to write to complete the challenge of NaNoWriMo and become a better writer overall.

In preparation for the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the Creative Writing Meetup team is hosting NaNoWriMo prep events to help you get ready to write 50,000 words in 30 days in November.

This is your support group for NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. Join over 500,000 writers from six different continents writing together toward a goal of 50,000 words in 30 days.

Bring your ideas and past NaNoWriMo experiences to share as we ensure you have a successful writing experience.

Staring November 1, join Lorelle, a long-time NaNoWriMo winner and veteran, and the rest of the Creative Writing Meetup group as we share our 4th annual NaNoWriMo writing marathon with you as we write our way through November.

For more information, join our Creative Writing Discord. Register your challenge and keep track of your word count, go to and check out the NaNoWriMo tips and guides on Lorelle Writes.
