National Novel Writing Month

November 1st - 30th
Thirty days and nights of literary abandon!

National Novel Writing Month kicks off on November 1st!

What is National Novel Writing Month? It's "thirty days and nights of literary abandon". It's a hands-on writing adventure where everyday people all around the world bash out a 50,000-word novel in 30 days--that's just 1,667 words a day! No judges or entry fees. Just a whole lot of fun.
