National Novel Writing Month began in 1999 as a daunting but straightforward challenge: to write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days. Now, each year on November 1, hundreds of thousands of people around the world begin to write, determined to end the month with 50,000 words of a brand new novel. They enter the month as elementary school teachers, mechanics, or stay-at-home parents. They leave novelists.
NaNoWriMo officially became a nonprofit organization in 2006, and our programs support writing fluency and education. Our website hosts more than a million writers, serving as a social network with author profiles, personal project libraries, and writing buddies. NaNoWriMo tracks words for writers like Fitbit track steps, and hosts real-world writing events in cities form Mexico City, to Seoul, to Milwaukee with the help of 900+ volunteers in thousands of partnering libraries and community centers like... well, like nothing else.
NaNoWriMo is internet-famous. It's community-powered (hello, Wrimos!). It's hosted authors drafting novels like Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants, Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus, Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, and Marissa Meyer's Cinder. It's a teaching tool and curriculum taught in thousands of classrooms, and NaNoWriMo's programs run year-round.
Whatever you though NaNoWriMo is, it's more than that. (Source)
