National Novel Writing Month

NaNoWriMo is on! November is National Novel Writing Month. Do you have the next Great Canadian Novel in your head?

Pledge to write every day in November with a goal to complete the month with 50,000 words of a new novel - that's 1,667 words every day. Join hundreds of thousands of writers around the globe in this annual initiative. Critically acclaimed novels such as Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, and WOOL by Hugh Howey started out during NanNoWriMo.
