iWriterly Video: NaNoWriMo Writing Tips & Sprints with the RevPit Editors: Part 1

Join Meg LaTorre and a group of the RevPit editors for NaNoWriMo writing tips and sprints. This special event is part of RevPit’s NaNoWriMo-themed contest. However, all are welcome to participate in the writing sprints (not simply those taking part in the RevPit contest).

This event will be broken into two parts:

  1. Writing/editing tips
  2. Writing sprints (20 minutes on // 5 minutes to rest)

RevPit editors will introduce themselves and share 1) one common concern they see in RevPit submissions, 2) one common trait they see in writers who excel in the revision process, and 3) one tip for writers participating in NaNoWriMo. After which time, the writing sprints will begin!

This is the first writing sprint event that will be held by the RevPit editors in November 2018. The second will take place on November 28, 2018 at 7:30 pm EST on Victoria Griffin’s YouTube channel.

Over the course of November, NaNoWriMo writing teams of 5-20 people will be led by the RevPit editors. Each team is genre-themed, and some are further broken down into age categories (such as MG, YA, adult, etc.).

Each week, team members are required to submit their NaNoWriMo word count to the team editor by Sundays at midnight. On Monday, team averages will be tweeted out through the @ReviseResub twitter account and on the #RevPit hashtag.

At the end of the month, the total word count averages will be tallied for all the teams, and the team with the highest word count average will win two prizes.
