NaNoWriMo...coming soon!

NaNoWriMo, the month-long novel writing project starts November 1st!
I will be participating this year for the third time. My children have decided not to this year, but did it last year.

The experience of trying to write many words every day for a month is challenging and fun at the same time.

For the kids, there is a Young Writers Program that includes a ton of cool resources. I like to visit that site for their dare machine when I am stuck! There are also teacher's guides and cool workbooks. The young writers set their own word limits, not like the adult's mandatory 50,000 words. 

The goal of NaNoWriMo is to get your creative juices flowing and to get writing freely. Before this challenge, my children didn't like to write at all. They still rather do something else now, but when required, I find that it is easier for them to get words on paper, and they also write a lot more. I like to think that NaNoWriMo helped them along a little bit!

You can still register for either the NaNoWriMo or the Young Writers Program.


  1. Thinking I will get mine involved this year. Are the Adrienne and Andre joining?

  2. If they have this every year I think I will try to get my kids involved in this next year and perhaps myself as well! This is a GREAT idea.
