Writing General - NaNoWriMo Edition! Anonymous 4217

Let's talk about writing, miners! Are you a writer? Want to become one? Ever wrote a full novel? Any writing tips you'd like to share?
Participating in NaNoWriMo this year?

For those of you who might not know what NaNoWriMo is: https://nanowrimo.org

I'll start the discussion!

I used to love writing since I was a child (I wrote children's tales, mostly with talking animals and the stuff) and really wanted to become a writer. I wrote cringey yaoi fanfics as well as self-inserts (cringe) and some more mature short stories. Also, I did role-playing at forums and so, which helped me improve. However I stopped writing after a huge writers' block and feeling that everything I wrote was pure shit.

I want to shake off both the block and the insecurities by tackling NaNoWriMo after years of no writing. It will probably result in utter shit, to be honest, but I want to overcome that fear and shame of showing other people my writing.

Hey anon! I'm thinking of taking part this year. I've had an idea for years but I've never written anything for it so I think I'm ready to start. Only problem is thay Nano is always at such an awkward time of the year. I used to start it every year while I was in school and fail because I was studying for Christmas exams and in college I always had an essay due that time of year. I'm doing a really intense course this year and I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to manage but I'm considering cheating a little and starting now so that I have time to study for exams next month.

Like you, my interest in writing started really early. My mom enrolled me in creative writing classes (which I miss so badly!). When I was a teenager, I got into fanfiction also and it surprisingly got a really good response, I was actually fairly popular. When I decided to start writing for myself again I just didn't have the motivation because I wasn't writing to impress my mom or as homework for creative writing class or for a fanfiction deadline. Hopefully Nano will encourage me!
