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

Rating: 5 stars  

For the past two years, my experiences with NaNoWriMo have all expanded and improved my writing, and taught me so much. OLL is so encouraging, I think NaNoWriMo is a great program for anyone who wants to switch up their lives or needs that extra push to start writing. And don't be discouraged- I'm shocked at each increasing wave of WriMo's joining each year.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Office of Letters and Light have, through NaNoWriMo, have helped me with 1. Writing over 50,000 words within a month, 2. Opening my imagination to the possibilities of the writing world, 3. Becoming more disciplined in my writing, 4. Developing my own style, and 5. Most importantly, (and all the above mentioned are pretty important!) getting me organize my time and mind with more concentration and effort then ever before. My time management has noticeably benefited from NaNoWriMo, and so has helped me with my writing and life even after December!

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

November, mostly, when the race truly takes off, but the effects of NaNoWriMo and the Office of Letters and Light's efforts have really stayed with me since then.

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

Leave it as it is. The Office of Letters and Light have done brilliantly, and you can really find everything you need on the site! The Pep Talk page, especially. There's just so much advice to encourage us on, it's wonderful.
