NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month - the Young Writers Program. I heard about this program last year but wasn't up for taking it on. This year I am all over it!

Basically, the kids will each write a novel - in a month! They set their own word count goal and write a certain amount each day. For example, H will write between 2000-5000 words and B will write between 10,000 - 25,000 words - they will decide in this range what they want to accomplish. By the end of the month they submit their word count to the website and send in their manuscript which then (if they met their word count goal) will be printed into a paper back copy of their own book!

I'm about to break the news to them...
