November is National Novel Writing Month! This event has a soft spot in my heart, because it pushed me to write my first novel.

Way back when, I'd always thought it might be fun to write a novel, but I was a bit intimidated by the time needed. Then I heard about NaNoWriMo.

NaNoWriMo started as a challenge to write the first draft of a whole novel during the month of November. There are now offshoots at other times of year, as well. There’s also a NaNoWriMo program just for kids and teens, called the Young Writers Program (YWP). Check it out at

Sound like fun? It can be, and I encourage you to try it this year. The world needs your story!
