Write a Novel This Month! For ALL Ages

It’s November 1st already! Where did the year go? The good news is, with November comes National Novel Writing Month – it’s NaNoWriMo time again! Write a novel this month.

My husband and I will each be working on a book this month. Unlike my hubby, I’m a nonfiction writer, so I’ll be working on my Geek Schooling book. In the past, any number of family members would be writing a novel at this time, including our two children. (I should remind my daughter that it’s Nanowrimo time – she’s away at college but still may want to participate.)

Write a Novel with NaNoWriMo! All ages!

It’s November and that means Nanowrimo time once again! My husband, son (13), and daughter (8) are starting to write their novels today – will you join them?

What is NaNoWriMo?
National Novel Writing Month happens every November! The challenge is to write an entire novel in just 30 days. That means participants begin writing November 1 and must finish by midnight, November 30. The word-count goal for the adult program is 50,000 words, but the Young Writers Program allows participants who are 17 years old and younger to set reasonable, yet challenging, word-count goals.

All around the world, other National Novel Writing Month participants of all ages are going through the same joys and sorrows of producing the “Great Frantic Novel”. And everyone wins, you get a certificate of participation at the end of the 30 days, providing you’ve reached your word count.

If you are 13 or older you can sign up on the main site at www.nanowrimo.org. Just know that you will have to write 50,000 words since the adult site doesn’t allow you to set your own word-count goal. This is terrific, because you and your child can both write a novel and encourage each other all month long

Best of all, there are many free tools available on the sites to help you write your novel.  If you are under 13, visit the How NaNoWriMo Works for Young Writers page! If you are an educator, visit the How NaNoWriMo Works for Educators page. Happy Writing!

Love, Luck &
Laughter,

Script Frenzy Starts April 1st!

Do you love National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo)?  If you do, you should check out Script Frenzy.  It’s international and it’s free.  Much like Nanowrimo, writing a novel in a month, for Script Frenzy you and/or your children write a script for a play in a month.  You may write screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, comic book scripts, radio scripts, adaptations of novels, or any other type of script!  Adults can sign up at the Script Frenzy website.  Children can take part by signing up for the Script Frenzy Young Writer’s Program.  I hope you enjoy writing scripts as much as our family does!

Love, Luck &
Laughter,
