Having the support of friends, family, or other important people in your life can help you accomplish your creative goals.

We’ve come up with these graphics that you can share to help the writer-adjacent people in your lives best understand how they can support you during November—whether that’s by keeping you off social media when you should be writing, coming up with chores for you to do if you don’t reach your goals, or participating in NaNoWriMo with you! Tag or share with someone you’d like to write with next month.

The next session of Camp NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, and with it, the usual myriad of distractions that keep you from writing.

Lean on some public accountability by posting these images on your own social media accounts and asking your friends to help you with promises of rewards, chores, or scolding!
