November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). In this month, participants from around the world compete (against themselves) to write a novel of at least 50,000 words.
Participants can elect to register for free on the official NaNoWriMo website. NaNoWriMo offers additional fun resources for participants, including special pep talks from published authors, regional forums and events, and theme-based communities.
Whether you are participating in the official program or just trying to improve your writing, we want to help!
