The craft and business of writing and self publishing

Halfway Through NaNo 2016

Kobo is proud to be an official sponsor of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).

But to us, it’s not just about sponsoring a great world-wide event. It’s about helping local writers in their goals to hit 50,000 words.

img_0587Just like we did last year, at about the half-way point, we opened our doors to 25 members of the Toronto NaNo group (@ToNaNo on Twitter), they set up shop in Kobo’s main boardroom fueled with pizza and candy bars, and they cranked out tens of thousands of words.

img_0589Team Toronto NaNo take their NaNoWriMo goals VERY seriously, and schedule a series of write-ins throughout the month at different venues. They know that there is strength in numbers and are an amazingly supportive group. They even schedule a ToNaNo Overnighter. We love it when writers are that dedicated to their craft and we applaud them for their dedication and hard work.

img_0585Writers supporting other writers is near and dear to what Kobo Writing Life is all about, and the Kobo Writing Life team are delighted to open our offices and hospitality up to them.  It’s inspiring to us to watch writers hard at work, possibly crafting the amazing titles that will, one day, grace the www.kobo.com catalog.

For those of you working your way through NaNoWriMo, if you need tips, you can find inspirational and motivational support throughout the month on the NaNoWriMo Pep-Talks page.

    I had a great time and was able to crank out a couple of thousand words during the event. Thanks again for sponsoring it.
