Not just NaNoWriMo

I participated in NaNoWriMo last year and I thought about doing NaNoEdMo, which is in March, this year but didn't get around to it. I did NaNoWriMo again and added NaBloPoMo and have now carried on with NaNoFiMo. Then I got to thinking how many more of these goal oriented months are there? Quite a few.
This is what I got in order of month.

JaNoWriMo- writing a novel in the month of January since November can be a little hectic for some.
NaNoArtMo- has a goal of ten art projects in a month for artist. It can be any kind of art from sculpting to cooking, it just has to be creative.
NaNoWriYe- write an entire novel, set your goal between 50,000 to 3,000,000 words and finish it in a year.

NaNoEdMo- editing your NaNoWriMo novel (I'm sure you could do any novel).

Script Frenzy- (odd name, huh?) and it's for writing a screenplay in a month.

JulNoWriMo- write a novel in July in place or in addition to November or January.
NaNoMango- is for artist to draw any kind of sequential art ( not just manga) and occurs again in November as well.

NaNoWriMo- write a 50,000 word novel.
NaBloPoMo- post on your blog everyday for a month
NaPlWriMo- write a play in a month
NaGraNoWriMo- write a 175 page graphic novel in a month
NaNoPubYe- start with your NaNoWriMo novel and then try to get it published with in a year.
NaNoMang- Draw sequential art, also takes place in July

NaNoFiMo-write 30,000 words to finish an unfinished novel, usually from NaNoWriMo

Various start dates:
Book in a week-starts every Monday of the first full week of the month, set your own goal the beginning of the week.
Mad Challenge-is every other month, starting February and they post a different challenge each time.

So there are a ton of good challenges. Many I would participate in if they didn't all seem to fall in the same few months. Of course it might just be more beneficial for me to take the goals of these groups but put them in realistic months for me. Maybe I'll have to make a schedule for myself.

Just watched: Heroes
Just read: Every issue of 52 for the last five weeks (I'm catching up slowly)

I'm so f-in down with the ones for plays! Last year my NaNoWriMo was going to be a novel of one-act plays because I can pound out a play in about an afternoon... of my "free time," of course.

We should start our own... NaFoGrGeYoAsToMo, which stands for National Focus Group Get Your Ass Together Month. It could catch on, no? LOL

Wow, I just did Nanowrimo, but I had no idea there were so many other challenges.

Thanks for this post, I'll be checking out some of the links.

Madchallenge sounds fun!

Thanks for reading!
That list took me forever to make so I'm glad people are getting some use out of it.
