Nano WHAT now? We’re talking about National Novel Writing Month. What began in 1999 as a challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November is now a full-blown nonprofit that runs creative writing programs and communal writing sessions in classrooms, partnering libraries, coffee shops, and community centers worldwide.
Books like Water for Elephants, Fangirl, and WOOL began as NaNoWriMo challenges. Have you ever dreamed of penning a novel or memoir of your very own? Join the tens of thousands of people who are getting ready to write their hearts out this month. Check out the Quo Vadis blog for tips on preparing/mapping your book, with inspiration from published and working authors. Writers like Agatha Christie, Henry James, Maya Angelou, and countless others started legendary books on paper, and you could be next. Good luck!
