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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have always been a writer, but it was not until I found National Novel Writing Month, hosted by the Office of Letters and Light, that I was finally able to push myself until I reached The End. The feeling of community and the energy that is generated during this event is incredible. The other things they do, The Young Writers and Script Frenzy, both provide this great energy as well. Just knowing that there are so many other people out there in the world, going through the same challenge as you is an incredible motivation.

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

Rating: 4 stars  

I learned about NaNoWriMo from a friend a few years back, before the start of OLL, and totally enjoyed participating in this month long creative writing ride. Before NaNo, I had only ever finished one first draft and it was a painstaking process that took many months. Since NaNo I have completed 3 first drafts and am working on editing a couple of them. Since OLL came into inception, I think NaNoWriMo has only gotten better and I am grateful for the turn of chance that brought me to their website those years ago.

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

The boost of my own creativity and belief in myself.

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

I think this is being worked on, but I would really like to see it made possible for a member of NaNoWriMo to set their own start date and end date so that month long novelling fun can be had all year round.
