Getting Ready for NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo is the shortcut acronym for National Novel Writing Month http://www.nanowrimo.org/
NaNoWriMo begins November 1 and proceeds through the month. (Time to etch it into your lesson plans)
The NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words in one month.

At NaNoWriMo you can:

  • papersWrite a novel in a month!
  • papersTrack your progress.
  • papersGet pep talks and support.
  • papersMeet fellow writers online and in person.

Psst! (and so can your students).

See this 2012 post by Katie Taylor for a great explanation of the whole process from a writer’s point of view.

This is such a great idea and a great PBL project for your students. There is even an app to make the whole process i-friendly.

Total Collective Word Count for 2012 was 3,291,117,756 words
