What is NaNoWriMo?!?
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and its happening this November! Every November there is a challenge to write a whole novel during the 30 days of November. Do you like to write? Have you always wanted to write a novel? Here’s your chance!
This challenge is for all ages! Not just adults. The adult website challenges you to write 50,000 words which is roughly the size of The Great Gatsby. The young writer’s website challenges you to make your own writing goal. If you are over the age of 13 you can join the adult challenge if you wish. You can do the young writer’s challenge if you are under the age of 17. Which one will you go for?
NaNoWriMo doesn’t care about quality writing, they care about quantity. To get the words and ideas down on paper. Its all about output. This allows you to write without worry, to write with no risks, to just write.
