The Office of Letters and Light
April 5, 2013

Some years ago someone suggested I needed to 'exercise my creative muscle' and that I should do so by trying NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month. The idea is, for adults, to write 50k words of a novel during November, but there is also an excellent Young Writers' Programme which stimulates and encourages youngsters to set and achieve their own writing goals. All of this is managed on voluntary donations and such fundraising as can be achieved.

The Office of Letters and Light is always supportive and helpful and finds time to answer the most trivial enquiries with courtesy and genuine friendliness, which makes a huge difference to hopeful writers who may be in any form of difficulty.

They deserve any assistance they can get, and in particular help from you!

The Office of Letters and Light
November 30, 2012

As a child and in my teens and 20s I loved to write, but when my children came along my creativity was channelled into other directions. Close on 7 years ago somebody who had known me then asked me what I was writing and when I laughed it off she suggested I needed to 'exercise my creative muscle'. In other words I needed to get back into the habit of writing and she suggested that NaNoWriMo would help me get back into the swing. Since then I have become involved and really enjoyed the experience. The people at OLL are totally supportive of everyone with whom they come in contact and are always ready, willing and able to give their help to all and sundry. I have seen people of every age from 7 to 70+ blossom as they participated, and in my region we have a range of nationalities who all get together and get along splendidly. I cannot perceive of November without NaNo!
