NaNoWriMo, though it sounds like an alien greeting from the planet Ork, is actually the abbreviated version of a month-long celebration for writers called “National Novel Writing Month.”

During the month of November, writers are encouraged to pen a novel of 50,000 words and are given ample support through online forums, write-ins, writers’ discussion groups and more. NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.
