Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first learned about Nanowrimo, I didn't think it was for me. I could never give myself enough encouragement and patience to sit down and write a 50,000 word novel over the course of a month. But after receiving a particularly encouraging pep-talk, I decided to, as Nike says, "just do it". It was hard of course, with life consistently getting in the way, but with all of the encouragement and support given to us writers, I knew I couldn't stop.
Nanowrimo IS for everyone, and anyone can succeed. I want everyone to experience the same amazing feeling I had when I crossed that 50K word line. Maybe even get a chance to become published.
So thank you to this special and unique organization, for their never ending encouragement and always positive attitude!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the end of November, when I finally reached my goal.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Perhaps hire more municipal liaisons. I would've loved to participate in their groups but unfortunately there was never one that was close enough to where I live.

Role:  Board Member & Participated in the Nanowrimo event.
