Today is the first day of November, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month.
If you have a budding author in your family, you should know about the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program. Kids create an account, set a word count goal, and start writing. The challenge is to write steadily all month and try to finish a whole story.
If kids write on-line using the YWP site, it will track metrics, such as their progress toward their goal and the number of days in a row they’ve written. Kids who meet their goal by the end of the month will be declared winners of NaNoWriMo.
I’m hoping to convince Larrabee to stop munching on his Halloween candy and dive into a new story!
