NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

 November is National Novel Writing Month.  For years many people have signed up on the NaNoWriMo website ( and pledged to write a certain number of words in a month.  The Young Writers section of the website is filled with ideas for developing your story and completing the words.  It also has a tracker to graph your progress.

Imagine making a commitment to writing every day.  By the end of thirty days, you’d have a lot of work done!

What kind of goal would you make?  A journal entry every day?  A page of your story?  A poem?  A certain number of words?

I’d love to set up a class on the NaNoWriMo site.  Students from my former school and writing camp, let me know if you want to join!

Think about your own commitment to writing for the next month.  What will it be?
