The goal is to write an entire novel in the course of 30 days. It’s a tough challenge that I have only participated in one year. I was able to win it though by completing my 50,000 word novel on time. It was quite the accomplishment and a lot of fun.
This year, I want to try something new. I have started “The Write Club” at my school. I have booked the computer lab during the first nutrition break every single day throughout the month. I have also booked it for an hour after school Tuesday – Thursday.
I have 30 students who have signed up for the challenge. I will be assisting them as a writing coach so I’m not sure I will have the chance to write as well. Hopefully, I will.
If this is something you’d like to try at your school, sign up as an educator in The Young Writer’s Program.
Why not start a writing club at your school?
If your classroom is participating in NaNoWriMo, I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment below.
