One of the biggest parts of NaNoWriMo (that is completely optional! I didn’t participate for years), is the community. Obviously, the first spot to start is on the NaNoWriMo site, with your region. And, of course, the #nanowrimo on any social media platform.
There’s a big writing community on both Twitch and Youtube (authortube), where people talk about writing process, share tips, give personal writing updates, and even ‘write-ins’. I do 22 minute snack-fueled writing sprints, (because it’s 2022), every Sunday afternoon year ’round, sharing a timer, and then taking a break and chatting for 10-30 minutes with my co-hosts and people in the chat!
