NaNoWriMo and the Muse

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is fast approaching. For those who don’t know what it is, NaNo is 30 days of literary abandon, where writers from all over the world sit down to write 50,000 words of a novel first draft.  This happens every November, and people get together to share writing community, trials, tribulations, and successes, all during the month.

To find out more about the event, visit the NaNoWriMo website and sign up! It’s entirely free, and maybe you can find your next writing group because of it.

What does this mean for the Relentless Muse, though?

During the month of November, Muse Monday posts are going to be a little bit different. Our regular format is 4 random writing prompts and 1 song to write to. For NaNoWriMo, we are going to be doing 7 writing prompts, one for each day, focused specifically on what part of the writing process potential participants will be at.  There will, of course, still be a song (or playlist) to write to.  And lastly, there will be a wordcount update, both what the goal is for the day to keep on course for NaNo, and my own personal wordcount.

7 prompts, 1 playlist, and a wordcount update, every week in November.

If you want to contribute to the Relentless Muse Blog, contact us at or send us a DM on Twitter!  Right now we are just accepting submissions for writing prompts, but in the near future (after the November rush), we’ll be doing some new things as well.

Happy Writing,
