Have you ever thought about writing a novel, but just didn’t think you had the time? You’re not alone. A small group of friends from the East Bay dared themselves to finish their novels in 30 days back in 1999; creating the foundation of what has become National Novel Writing Month. Since then, this small non-profit, NaNoWriMo.org, has become a global event of epic proportions! 50,000 words in 30 days! Quantity over quality is the name of the game. Turn off your inner editor and win.
Are you working on a thesis, dissertation, or any other writing project (creative or otherwise), but could use a bit of support from the collective energy of fellow students or colleagues to help you stay focused and provide some inspiration? NaNoWriMo isn’t just for novels anymore – be a NaNoWriMo “Rebel”, and work on your academic projects, an article, a chapter, final research paper, memoir, screenplay, etc., and possibly find some new writing buddies along the way!
