NANOWRIMO!!!

NaNoWriMo is about to strike again! 30 days (and nights) of writing furiously! 50,000 words in 30 days. It doesn't have to be good. Save editing for later. 

www.nanowrimo.org

Some basic rules:
  • Write - don't go back and edit anything because every word goes toward your word count.
  • Can't do one word 50,000 times.
  • OpenOffice's word count is different than NaNoWriMo's official counter. I don't feel safe until my OO says 52,000 words.
  • It should be fiction.

There is also the Young Writers Program for people under 18. If I recall correctly, this program allows the writer to choose how many words their goal is going to be. A link to YWP is below.
