My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
I was a bit doubtful about participating in NaNoWriMo when a coworker of mine first encouraged me to sign up. I've always loved reading but believed I was a terrible writer.
And now, I'm a NaNoWriMo winner. That's right. I wrote 50,000 words in 30 days. Some of those words were strangely inspired, some of them came from my pen without my brain consciously considering them ahead of time, some of them were boring, and some were downright terrible (and embarrassing, *sigh*).
The experience of completing such a monumental challenge was incredible. There is absolutely no way I could have achieved such a thing without the full community of NaNoWriMos out there doing the same thing, supporting each other through the website, at local write-ins, with emails. I am so grateful to the people at the Office of Letters and Light for their intensely motivating work--you made something wonderful possible for me!
I'm addicted to NaNoWriMo now, and I can't wait to drag all my friends along with me on the journey next November!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my successful completion of NaNoWriMo.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them more publicity.
