NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. It's a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30. Last year there were 167,150 participants and 32,178 winners, with 2,427,190,537 words officially logged during the 2009 event. When you sign up you can find your region, support, get emails, and more! Last year the SCBWI WWA had a NaNoWriMo group on Facebook! As someone who successfully participated last year, I'd encourage you to check it out! It's fun, it gets you writing, and it's free!!
