Have you ever thought about writing a novel, but just didn’t think you had the time? Well, a small group of friends from the East Bay, dared themselves to finish their novels in 30 days back in 1999, and since then, this small non-profit, NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, has become a global event of epic proportions! 50,000 words in 30 days! Quantity over quality is the name of the game! Turn off your inner editor and win!

The amazing folks over at created this worldwide community of writers and a support system of libraries, bookstores and other neighborhood spaces all over the globe called Come Write In, where “Wrimos” gather and forge ahead towards their word count goals during their quest to win this book-in-a-month contest. With all the collective, positive energy of over 300,000+ participants, all writing together, winning is possible! So, finish that paper, mid-term or lab report and come join us!
