National Novel Writing Month

November 1 - November 30


National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.

On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

Join for FREE at http://nanowrimo.org/ and take part in the group writing events that are offered all month long. Fort Stockton has their very own Municipal Liason, and groups that meet to support each other in their writing goals. These events are meant to help keep you motivated and on track with meeting your word count goals. You do NOT have to share your writing with your group. Contact our Municipal Liason Sarah Shuttleworth for more information about local National Novel Writing Month events.
