Ever wondered what it would be like to have literary abandon for 30 days and nights? Though the name sounds silly, but the objective of the NaNoWriMo is anything but silly. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and is a platform and opportunity to all the budding writers to cook up their very own novels.
November is the chosen month for all those writing aficionados to brew up their thoughts and concoct a novel in 30 days time. The word count for the novel is 50,000 words, which is approximately 175 pages. The NaNoWrimo is open to just about anyone who wants to write. It is not about what or how you write; it is all about crossing the finishing line with 50,000 words woven in sentences making perfect sense.
While the NaNoWriMo is mainly designed for the adults, the Young writer’s program is designed to suit the needs of the young writers. They do not have a word count to follow and the word count allotted to them varies for different age groups.
What is NaNoWriMo: Whipping up a novel of 50,000 words from scratch.
Who can participate: Anyone and everyone who loves, likes and wishes to write.
Why participate: For the fun of writing and expressing your creativity in an unleashed manner.

Whether you are a published author, first time writer or a writer who writes for the fun of it, just sharpen your creativity and get ready to go on a writing spree. I am ready, are you??
