National Novel Writing Month (also known as NaNoWriMo) is an annual internet-based creative writing project which challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel between November 1 and November 30. The project started in July 1999 with just 21 participants, but by the 2010 event over 200,000 people took part. Writers wishing to participate first register on the project's website (www.nanowrimo.org), where they can post profiles and information about their novels, including synopsis and excerpts. Word counts are validated on the site, with writers submitting a copy of their novel for automatic counting.

So... for school this month, Key Lime Pie, Kotten Kandy and I (along with our good friend Amy B.) have decided to take the challenge. Today is Day 1! I will be daily updating our progress for you - check out the side-bar for our numbers. In order to finish writing our novels by November 3oth, we need to write 1667 words per day. Our goal is a bit more ambitious - we're shooting for 2000 words per day.

This video describes it all! Check it out....
