November Happenings: Sci-Fi Month, NaNoWriMo 2014, and Gaming Flail!
November is going to be a very busy month for us at BiblioSanctum, from NaNoWriMo to SciFiMonth, to our many gaming endeavors. Here’s what’s up!
November is SciFiMonth! We’ll be joining other bloggers, authors, and readers in everything science fiction! Look out for reviews and more, as we turn away from the fantastical to partake of the scientific! For more information, visit Oh,The Books SciFiMonth post, and follow the hashtag #RRSciFiMonth. Here at BiblioSanctum, our reviews and posts will branch off from the usual to encompass the various mediums that science fiction touches. From television and film, to video games, and more.
And of course, November is also National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. For those not familiar with it, NaNo is a month-long writing event that challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel from November 1 to November 30. Once again the BiblioSanctum bloggers will be taking part, but fear not, we’ll be doing our best to keep this blog updated with plenty of reviews and other goodness in the midst of all the novel writing frenzy! November 2014 may be a busier month than usual, but for many of us, NaNo is an annual tradition — it’s just something we do every year no matter what! And ultimately, it doesn’t matter if you don’t “win” because it never hurts to try. Whether or not you reach 50K words or even just a fraction of that, at the end of the month you’ll end up much farther ahead on your writing project than you would’ve if you’d never even started, and that’s the important thing.
As you know, Mogsy, Wendy, and Tiara are gamers, so November will also bring us lots of gaming flails with the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition and World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor. When we’re not busy playing our shiny new games, we’ll be reading and reviewing some of the many gaming related books and comics out there, including the latest Dragon Age novels. While these games are deeply entrenched in the fantasy genre, you won’t be able to fight the signal when we get our hands on them. Be prepared for much flail and many feels!
