The year 2020 has been challenging for everyone, but especially for creatives, who have often found themselves fighting an uphill battle. For some writers the year came with a burst of inspiration for new projects, while others were weighed down, distracted by current events. November, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), has become a focal point for writers, either to finish an existing project or to get back on the proverbial bicycle and jumpstart a languishing project.
We’ve gathered a number of area writers to talk about how this year has affected their workflow and what they’re doing to stay focused and get their projects over the finish line. Whether you’re looking for inspiration to get past the final weeks of NaNoWriMo or fighting off year-long writer’s block, there’s something for everyone in this online session.
