WHAT IS NANOWRIMO?
National Novel Writing Month (or Nanowrimo) is exactly that—a whole month dedicated to writing your dream novel. Writers are challenged to write 50,000 words within the 30 days of November.
This is my seventh official year participating and I love that I will be able to write while also raising money or an important and favorite cause of mine.
