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

Rating: 5 stars  

I had never heard of NaNoWriMo or Office of Letters and Light until Oct of 2010. A friend of mine mentioned it in passing and I had to ask what it was. She told me a little about the writing challenge and sent me the website address. When I looked at the site and saw what they were all about, I was on board. Within three weeks I had an idea for the book I was going to write and as of Nov. 1 I was off.

In doing the challenge, I found so much support from everyone who had signed up. This is support from strangers. They know nothing about me but they were sending words of encouragement and help. With more research I found that they not only support adults and their dreams of being a writer, they also support kids. They have so many different writing challenges, professional support to polish the novels, stories, plays, whatever.

This community is amazing. I wholeheartedly support it and can't wait to be able to do more.

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

I honestly can't think of a thing. They are so supportive during and between all of the challenges.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I wrote a 50,000 word novel within 30 days.
