NaNoWriMo 2021 30-Day Quick Writing Challenge

Are you up for the challenge? It's National November Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and the goal is to make writing a habit! Participate in our daily quick writing challenges by utilizing the prompts to get the thoughts flowing and just keep writing! Before you know it, the month will be over and progress and improvements would have been made to your writing.

For this quick writing challenge, we're going to be writing about different prompts daily. In case you want to write about only one thing this whole November (an entire series, perhaps?) please head over to our other Challenge called "NaNoWriMo Series Writing."

Let's go do this!


We'll be posting prompts on the Commaful account daily at 3PM PST. Check out the prompt and use 2 hashtags: 1) #Nanowrimo2021Challenge and 2) The hashtag for the day so people can find your stories (Example: #Nanowrimo2021ChallengeDay1)

That's it! Once again... Are you up for the challenge?

November 1st 2021, 7:00 pm ~ November 30th 2021, 7:59 pm (your time zone)


Here's how you can participate in our daily challenge:

1. Check the prompt at 3PM PST daily or get ahead by checking out the daily prompts breakdown below.
2. Write your story and tag it with #Nanowrimo2021Challenge. Please tag
3. Add another tag for the day so people in the community can read stories from the prompts they love. Example: Day 1 tag = #Nanowrimo2021ChallengeDay1
4. Write your story on the creator and track the number of words written! Since the purpose of #NaNoWriMo is to make writing a habit, let's track our progress for our own personal goals! An ideal quick-writing challenge story would have 100-200 words.
5. Look for the shoutout on the Commaful page for the specific day and Comment the link to your story to give yourself and your story a boost. You can also write a brief description about your story on the comment as well as how many words you've written today so that you can track your progress.
6. If you love reading, please check out the entries from other members of the community too!
