The Novel Nurse Wrimos group, which was dormant from January through September, is getting a facelift!


It is now the Novel Nurse Community Caféthe official group for Novel Nurse supporters to sprint with each other, ask each other for tips when in a jam, and to help one another along your writing journeys!


From October through December, we focus on NaNoWriMo support, and this page supplements that project.

For starters, here's a helpful post with 7 tips on how to Succeed at NaNoWriMo Every Year.

These are the official graphics provided by NaNoWriMo for participants to use on social media!

Calling local (and non-local) writers! Start your week off right!
Join me at the My Oviedo Store for a local write-in and/or join us in the Novel Nurse Community Café for the virtual portion using Facebook Live.

Draw motivation from your community and get some writing in, plot, edit . . . you name it. Angie Wade from Novel Nurse Editing will be there as well, to work and be there for anyone who needs support or a listening ear. This write-in happens every Monday in November for NaNoWriMo this year. While you can work on any project you have on your plate, it will also be a space to help you work on your November novel.

From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Eastern is our sprint/writing sessions. We will stream that one hour live in the Novel Nurse Community Café for those of you who aren't local. We do three, 15-minute writing dedications with 5-minute breaks in between. (No, you don't need to be in the stream, lol.)


The dates listed below are also links to the Facebook event on that day. Be sure to RSVP so Facebook will remind you to join us. I can't wait to meet you!

In support of the indie author community, and of all writers, I send a contribution to NaNoWriMo every year. And I want to see your badges! 


NaNoWriMo is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that wants to support you and your creativity. For the month of November, they challenge you to write 50,000 words and clock your work with them.


Succeed in their November challenge and show me your badges! I offer 20% off Stitches and Story CPR packages every year for winners of that year's NaNoWriMo. It's my biggest (and sometimes only) discount of the year. Want to participate but prefer a different package? Email me! 


Whether you would like to get an editing package or not, feel free to join the group writers in the Café! At the end of the year, we focus on NaNoWriMo. The group is an open forum where writers feel comfortable asking questions and receiving constructive criticism when they ask for it.


During October, we lay groundwork and get everyone prepped for a successful November. Twice a week in November, we do check-ins to see where everyone is at with their word counts. Once November is over, we start the prep work in cleaning up manuscripts for anyone who sticks around until the end of the year.

Word Goal Sheets - Free Printables


These printables are designed to help you stay on track for any novel you have a deadline for (particularly NaNoWriMo). Each of them have their goals set differently, so be sure you grab the one that best fits your writing style.


This sheet has no goals written in, so you can set your own! If you want to write on certain days of the week, are planning to take off Thanksgiving week, or want to work your goal around your work schedule, this one is for you.

This sheet has the heaviest goal on day one and gradually decreases the daily goal as the month progresses. If you know you will have a strong start and prefer a dwindling goal, this one is for you.
