November NaNoWriMo 23′ Student-Writers Signing Up and Writing Down At Oakmont

NaNoWriMo 23’

Nanowrimo 2023!! Exciting, right? Well, if you know about it… So, allow me to tell you.

Nanowrimo is a non-profit organization that helps young and old writers, (such as us) track their progress on novels we write! This organization offers a wonderful community with the main goal of creating a space of freedom to be able to find our voice, achieve creative goals, and build new worlds! On and off paper. National Novel Writing Month is what it’s also known for. It began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge.

Now you might be asking yourself.  What is the challenge?

Well, this writing challenge of the month is to complete writing 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days.  Crazy right?! Not for some . . . and me.  Now, each year on November 1st, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with a first draft.  A draft with all their ideas, a brain splatter basically. No edits, no revising. just punch those keys as Mr. Nevard would say!

Now, there is a change that they decided to implement recently: writing comments for high school students. Mrs. Morin, our wonderful librarian, has enrolled us students to support us on our NaNoWriMo adventure. Judging by your skill and grade level and time commitment, each individual writer decides what word count goals you want to achieve by the end of the month!

Don’t give up! Sign up now. 

How do I sign up?

Students, teachers, office workers, doctors. All with an amazing passion for writing, enter and leave novelists. See Mrs. Morin in the library to write your name on that sign-up sheet! There is a Google Classroom and a team on the NaNoWriMo website that you join so you never lose that progress!

Mrs Morin provides the Nanorimo writer’s workbook with innovative writing prompts to give you a little push if needed. It’s not too late, sign up and start writing now!
