About NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. 

On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

The event began in 1999, and has encouraged writers every year since then to just sit down and WRITE. Not to edit, not to revise, but simply to get words down for review later.

NaNoWriMo Rules

In the spirit of the original NaNoWriMo our goal is to get things written… 

On November 1, participants can choose to begin working towards the goal of writing 50,000 words OR writing a blog post a day (so 30 posts during November) by 11:59 PM on November 30.

You do NOT have to publish these — simply write them. We’ll take your word for it. The goal is to create enough content that for the next year you can review, revise, and edit and have regular posts to go up on your website. 

To sign up, you’ll want to add your email address in the box below… and then each Monday we’ll send you a link where you can check in if you’ve achieved that week’s goal (see below) for a chance to win one of our weekly prizes! 

During the week we’ll also have check-in threads where you can share your progress, share your work, or chat with other participating bloggers in the Fenzi Ripple Effect Group — all under the hashtag #DogTrainerNaNoWriMo. You’re also welcome to post in the group (or out of it) using this hashtag anytime you’d like!
