What is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)?

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

Throughout November, aspiring authors work on their novels with encouragement from authors and other writers, and keep track of their word counts on the NaNoWriMo website
