Yep. If you haven’t stated yet, crack out your quills, attach your feather to a tether, and get writing! The month of November is National Novel Writing Month – subtitle “The world needs your novel.” – or NaNoWriMo for short. (And by “National” they mean “International.”)

Per the blog at IngramSpark, understandably a big supporter of the event:

“In July of 1999 a small group of would-be-authors had the novel idea of each trying to write their own book. They lovingly called it “noveling. What they didn’t know, was they were laying the foundation for what would soon become one of the world’s most widely participated mass-writing events.

NaNoWriMo was established in 2005 as a nonprofit built on the belief that everyone has a story inside. To motivate people to embrace their creativity and bring their stories to life, NaNoWriMo challenges participants to write a 50,000-word novel during the month of November.

While the challenge gives NaNoWriMo a fun and untraditional twist to noveling, the real purpose behind the month-long event is to support and inspire those around the world to share their voice. NaNoWriMo, along with its subprograms (Camp NaNoWriMo, Young Writers Program, Come Write In, and “Now What” Months) champion the power of the human mind to make the world a better place.”
