It’s that time again — NaNoWriMo!!

November is National Novel Writing Month! 
NaNoWriMo officially begins at midnight—whatever your local time—on Monday, November 1.  People around the country will be hunkering down to crank out a full novel in just 30 days.  

NaNoWriMo doesn't care about quality writing, they care about quantity.  To get the words and ideas down on paper.  It's all about output.  This allows you to write without worry, to write with no risks, to just write.

Teens who want to participate have a choice of doing the regular (adult) NaNoWriMo program or the Young Writers' Program.  The regular program is for ages 13 or older, and on November 1, you will begin writing a 50,000 word novel.  The Young Writer's Program is for 17 years and younger;  you still have to complete a novel in one month, but you can set your own word-count goal instead of being limited to the 50,000 words.

Which one will you go for? 

While you're writing, you get to talk to other writers on the website forums, get ideas from the "Dare Machine," and if you finish, you not only get the pleasure of having completed an entire novel, you get a snazzy certificate! 

To reach the 50,000 word challenge visit http://www.nanowrimo.org/.
To reach the Young Writer's challenge visit http://ywp.nanowrimo.org/.

And get ready to become a novelist!
