How to Create a Simple NaNoWriMo Bullet Journal

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing month in which you are challenged to write 50k words in one month during Novemeber. 50k words as that’s the basic length of a novel.) is right around the corner and I’ve been using up all my free time to ready for it. I have a plot in mind, I have characters in mind, and now to put all ideas and plans down onto paper. All thanks to Boho Berry’s NaNoWriMo Bullet Journal video I had watched last year, I had been intrigued with creating my own version of it, except in my case, I call it my Writing Bullet Journal. But during Novemember, I guess it’s more-so a NaNo– you get the point.

Think of it as a journal for all your lists like to-watch, to-read, to-do, shopping, meal planning, activity tracker, etc. all in one notebook. I keep one. And added on top of that, I’ve made something very few have made (or at least, very few have shared over the internet). A writing bullet journal.

That’s right. Writing.

Below will be a list of things you can include in your writing bullet journal for things such as a personal novel, NaNoWriMo, and basic note-taking.

Camp NaNoWriMo: Part 2 Update & Bullet Journal Stuff

The first part of Camp National Novel Writing Month had been a great success for me with finishing the first part of my novel within the limit of 25,000 words I had given myself. Now more than halfway through Part 2, it’s safe to say that I’ve failed at my new goal of 20,000 words, and I’m okay with that. Does that mean I won’t finish my 2.2 Draft of Forgiven? Noperdoodles! It means I’m just taking a little break. We writers need that every now and then. (I sure as hell needed it after NaNoWriMo ’14…)
