What is it?
NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is an annual writing event in which participants are challenged to write a novel in 30 days. The adult program has a word-count goal of 50,000, but students who are 17 and under can set their own goal. Your word count doesn’t have to be 50,000, but it does have to be challenging.
When does it take place?
November 1 – November 30
