The NaNoWriMo website has been updated for this years event! If you are a returning writer you will notice that previous stats have been cleared and your “Novel Info” has been cleared. I haven’t yet updated mine as I am still working out the specifics of what I plan on writing this year.
The forums are picking up and are certainly worth checking out. The authors of Scrivener are sponsors of NaNoWriMo 2010. For winners you can pick up the application for 50% off! I actually picked up a copy despite not being a Mac user myself. The very exciting news for this year is that a beta of Scrivener for Windows is being released in time for NaNoWriMo! This is not only going to give plenty of more people a chance to be introduced to the program, but will give the authors a very solid base for testing.
So if you haven’t checked out the site yet, head on over. New Word Widgets should be released as well soon. Personally I enjoy them a lot as a stats guy, plus they help keep you going. Seeing you are only say a couple of hundred words from your daily goal helps you push yourself. So with those and the new beta of Scrivener, I am really looking forward to it this year.
