It is a fun, seat-of-your-pants novel writing event where the challenge is to write an entire novel in just 30 days. That means participants begin writing November 1 and must finish by midnight, November 30. The word-count goal for our adult program is 50,000 words, but our Young Writers Program allows participants who are 17 years old and younger to set reasonable, yet challenging, word-count goals.
The thing that matters most in NaNoWriMo is output. Our high-velocity approach forces you to lower your expectations, take risks, and write on the fly.
I am planning on still keeping up with reading and blogging as much as I can because otherwise I would really miss it but I might not be able to post as much this coming month.
Are any of my lovely readers and fellow bloggers participating in Nano?
