National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, or just NaNo for short) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.

NaNoWriMo is an event which challenges you, and authors, and well, everyone; to write a 50,000 word Novel in the month of November. "50,000!?" I hear you scream, and yes, 50,000.

It is a grand challenge which occurs every year during the month of November. However, there are events before this 'grand finale' which should help you prepare!

Starting from September 13th, 'NaNo Prep' begins, where each week we're given tasks to help us get ready. Check the NaNo Prep section for information or visit the NaNo Prep Website.
