If you are not yet familiar with the term “NaNoWriMo”, we’re going to change that!  NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) happens once a year in November and is organized by a non-profit writing support group of the same name.  The challenge is to get your creative writing juices flowing by getting in the habit of writing daily.  By the end of November, the goal is to have written at least 50,000 words which equates to a novel.

During NaNoWriMo, the focus is not on the quality of the writing but getting the words on paper.  So, don’t worry if you feel overwhelmed with editing and sentence structure in your writing, but instead write your story little by little each day of the month.


NaNoWriMo offers a supportive community and regional meetups called “write-ins” to help encourage participants along the way.  Can’t make it to a local group or prefer online support?  Don’t worry, WNBA-LA has got you covered.  Join our WNBA-LA Member’s Only facebook group “WNBA-LA Incite to Write”  for motivation, support and like-minded writers.

Also, learn more about the amazing support offered by the Women’s National Book Association-LA Chapter after NaNoWriMo to learn how to take your writing from rough draft to final product with the Incite to Write series kicking off in December.
