It’s time for young writers (and their teachers!) to sign up for National Novel Writing Month, which begins Nov. 1, 2011. In 2010, 41,000 young writers participated in this fun, free event. They committed to writing an entire novel in one month. Visit the NaNoWriMo website to register, and you will find support, resources, curriculum guides, and plenty of encouragement to help you meet your daily word count goal.
Once you sign up, you will be able to visit with fellow writers on the young writers forum, receive pep talks to keep you motivated, and even post your novel-in-progress at Figment! It’s a community where you can share your writing, connect with other readers, and discover new stories and authors.
