My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
I came across NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month, at the end of October 2010 quite by chance as you do. I thought then, why have I not known about this before. I thought that the whole concept of challenging yourself to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days was wonderfully crazy. The story of how it all came about was itself worthy of a novel (or maybe Nano the film!). I loved the fact that the Office of Letters and Light (such a cool name!) not only supported writers and aspiring writers to accept and succeed at the challenge, but also supported literacy projects through the Young Writers' Program. They could so easily, and I'm sure people would have still have signed up, have run it for profit, but they chose to make a difference in the world though people doing what they love. The team behind the project are incredibly motivating and dedicated. They inspire and uplift and this comes through in absolutely every detail of what they do. I have just completed my third challenge and can honestly say that my chance happening upon NaNoWriMo was the best example of serendipity for me on the web. I cannot imagine a November without them now and what is brilliant is that they are still there throughout the year gently nudging and encouraging us to be our best selves.
