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

Rating: 5 stars  

My teenage sister roped me into the annual NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) under duress. I expected to be either bored or frustrated by the process. In fact, I had a wonderful time! The O.L.L. provides a well-designed website with lots of help and information, a profile page where you can update your word count instantly (which turned out to be a highly effective motivator for me!), and even forums where you can contact other WriMos. They send out encouraging newsletters and pep talks written by successful authors throughout the process.

I was so impressed by this organization's literacy and community programs that I dipped into my very thin wallet and found some funds to contribute. That doesn't happen very often!

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

encouraging literacy, writing, and appreciation of the world of the professional author.

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

Can't think of anything...
