CLOSED! Acwrimo and NaNoWriMo coaching intensive

As we approach the end of the year, the pressure to meet our 2023 writing goals increases. That is probably why November is a crucial period for both academics (AcWriMo) and novelists (NaNoWriMo). On social media and in offline writing communities, writers set ambitious daily writing goals for themselves and throughout the month share their progress to stay accountable. Generally, this increased pressure and accountability works great for ADHD writers. However, achieving ambitious writing targets during this month can be a significant challenge. That’s where the AcWriMo and NaNoWriMo coaching intensive comes in. This 1-on-1 coaching program will help you achieve your November writing goals, by managing the roadblocks ADHD will try to throw your way. 

The added pressure of this month can intensify the writing challenges associated with ADHD – such as perfectionism and negative self-thoughts, struggle to manage motivation and discipline, distractibility and time blindness. And it’s crucial to address these challenges if you want to become the productive writer you know you can be! 

The AcWriMo or NaNoWriMo coaching intensive focuses on understanding and addressing your main ADHD-related writing challenges, so you can achieve your November writing goals. Through five coaching sessions, we’ll work together to develop a tailored plan to make sure this November is your most successful one yet! 

Do you want to talk to me about what that would look like? 

November is Writing Month

What is NaNoWriMo?

NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) originally emerged as a national initiative to inspire novelists to bring their book to life. The challenge: craft a 50,000-word novel within just 30 days. If you reach this milestone, you get the right to call yourself a “NaNoWriMo winner.”

Throughout November, participants share their word targets and progress on social media, creating a supportive atmosphere that keeps everyone motivated. It’s precisely this collaborative, motivating spirit that I also infuse into my NaNoWriMo coaching. In our meetings, however, your work and ambitions are the sole focus. Together, we’ll work on making you a happy and successful writer. 

How about AcWriMo?

The NaNoWriMo model was such a success that it sparked a variety of spin-offs and adaptations. One of the most captivating of these offshoots is AcWriMo, tailored to academics. What sets AcWriMo apart and makes it particularly appealing is its flexibility. Unlike NaNoWriMo, there’s no rigid word count requirement. In AcWriMo, you can define and pursue your own unique writing objectives. This adaptability and flexibility are fundamental aspects I also integrate into my AcWriMo coaching, with the aim of empowering ADHD academics to achieve their writing goals. 

ADHD challenges in November

Navigating the unique challenges that ADHD presents is vital during a writing marathon. The fatigue that results from keeping up the pace tends to amplify our ADHD symptoms, making individual support all the more essential. The last thing you want is to lose the second half of the month to distractions and negative thought spirals, right? 

With individualized support and troubleshooting, our sessions together will equip you with the tools and strategies you need to navigate these potential pitfalls, ensuring a successful writing marathon. 

The AcWriMo and NaNoWriMo Coaching Intensive for ADHD writers

Quick facts


The WriMo Coaching Intensive is a highly personalized month of 1-on-1 coaching to help you achieve your November writing goals. 
During the intake meeting, we’ll talk about your goals and your challenges, and together design an AcWriMo or NaNoWriMo coaching program specifically for you. 
The essence of my coaching approach lies in its deeply personalized nature. You’ve reached this point in your journey precisely because you’ve already honed impressive strategies to navigate the world with your ADHD. You might excel in the art of planning, but need guidance on juggling big-picture and detailed views when writing. Or you might possess a clear vision for your writing but struggle to set motivating goals to ward of constant self-disappointment. 
A standard, one-size-fits-all program won’t help you much. Your needs are unique and deserve a kind of focused attention that takes into account your individual journey. Together, we’ll dive into those areas of your writing practice that will wield the most significant influence on your November productivity. We’ll work on recognizing your strengths and challenges, and design an effective program to you personally. 

How this will help you

The core aim of this program is to assist you in overcoming the roadblocks that will hinder your progress in November. Instead of experiencing burnout after the initial week, and stress and disappoinment for the entire 30 days of WriMo, I can offer you a fulfilling and productive AcWriMo or NaNoWriMo coaching experience. 

Bonus: extra discount

If you participate in the Ac/NaNoWriMo Coaching program, you get a 10% discount on editing if you order in December. That means that when your writing month is done, you can start focusing on the holidays: I’ll take care of your writing for you, so you can start 2024 with a fresh, polished text!
