Don't #NaNoWriMo Without Purpose

November is National Novel Writing Month, and thousands of writers join together on NaNoWriMo to support each other as they attempt to write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. I know writers who love it and successfully crank out a crappy first draft during NaNoWriMo every year. I know more writers who begin with gusto only to get a few harried days into the month and wonder why they are writing at all.

Just for you, my writing friends, I’ve created a guided journal called The Writer’s Purpose Journal. I created this writing resource because after I finished my seventh novel, I felt depleted and lost as a writer. I spent three months in prayerful introspection, pouring over a file of notes from readers and journaling my feelings about writing and publishing. When I came out of that season, I had a list of questions that had helped me narrow my focus and remember my purpose. I know so many writers who also hit these blocks, and I thought it might help to have the questions laid out in a guided journal format.

Do you want to write but don’t know where to start? Are you halfway through your manuscript and feel blocked? Have you lost your enthusiasm for writing?

Let The Writer’s Purpose Journal guide you on a journey to rediscovering your purpose as a writer. Using questions to prompt soul-searching journal entries, The Writer’s Purpose Journal will lead you through your beginnings as a writer, your influences, your goals, and your motivations to help you remove blocks and find fulfillment as a writer.
The Writer’s Purpose Journal is available now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers. You can read more about my series of softcover guided journals here.
