National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)
Every November National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) takes place. This non-profit organization provides a platform for aspiring writers to write towards a 50,000-word goal in only 30 days. The organization also has a young writer’s program for those writers that are in grades K-12 to write. For the purpose of keeping that magic going, NaNoWriMo provides “camp” twice a year in the months of April and July. Camp NaNoWriMo is a less drastic NaNoWriMo, where everyone is able to set their own goals.
This organization helped me to release my inner creativity through my writing. I am forever grateful for the opportunities that this organization has given me. And I can’t wait to share the journey I have with you. For me, NaNoWriMo has changed my life and the way I think about things. Writing is the farthest thing from easy, but writing for others to enjoy makes it all worth while.
As I take on this journey to write at a ridiculously fast speed, my hope is to bring everyone stories that will last a lifetime. So follow me on my journey through the creative lands of writing as I take on Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo!
