About Novel Writing Winter (NWW) 2013
Welcome to this page, which tells you about Novel Writing Winter (NWW),scheduled to take place from January 1 – March 20, 2013. This begins with a New Year’s Resolution to complete the first draft of a novel through the winter months.
In November, I signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), but backed out after a few days. You can read my ten reasons for this decision at http://sarahpotterwrites.wordpress.com/2012/11/04/reversing-lights-on-backing-out-of-the-nanowrimo-space/
If you share any of these reasons for not dashing straight up the steep slope of NaNoWriMo, but would like to commit yourself to a gentler climb, then NWW is for you.
For those who commit to this challenge, how about telling us in brief (between 50-100 words) why you want to take part in NWW and the genre into which your proposed novel fits (or doesn’t fit!). This post could take the form of a guest post on my blog or a reblog from your own site, which I’d also link to this page.
To spread the word about Novel Writing Winter (NWW), I would much appreciate if participants would display the logo above in the sidebar on the home page of their blog or their Facebook page. Please include the image and link url, plus caption (as shown below).
To insert the logo on WordPress
- From left-hand drop down menu on your own blog, select widgets.
- Drag and open an image widget box in your primary sidebar.
- Insert image url http://sarahpotterwrites.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/novelwritingwintertrees1.jpg

Now get ready to party — research, plan, and prepare for lift-off on January 1, 2013. Meanwhile, why not install a “milestone widget” beneath the logo image, so you can countdown to New Year’s Day, then, when you start writing, reset your countdown to March 20.
Good luck with your research and novel planning throughout December
