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

Rating: 4 stars  

I first found out about NaNoWriMo in 2004 and I have been participating almost every year since then.

It's difficult at times, because I'm usually in classes, but it can feel quite rewarding when I sit down and manage to write that whole novella in a month's time.

Writing was always something I dabbled in, but I never wrote very fast, but after a few years of NaNoWriMo, I have learned that I can, in fact, type 2000 words in a day given the right motivation, and sometimes I have gone far above and beyond that in the course of the month.

Because of my experience with NaNoWriMo, I have been able to more-or-less keep up with a serial novel, posted in short chapters, for over half a year now.

While I have yet to actually finish a NaNo Novel because I lose my momentum to school after finishing, I really hope to finish one someday and make it available to the internet, since I do not think I am nearly good enough to be published.

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

My writing skills have improved since I started and the volume of my writing has increased drastically.

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

Perhaps host two different NaNo sessions in the year. While I like the Fall session, I hardly ever get a chance to finish because it conflicts with my schoolwork and my schoolwork has to come first.
