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

Rating: 5 stars  

NaNoWriMo is possibly one of the best writing programs I have ever entered in. Going into what could be viewed to many as an impossible feat, with thousands of people from around the world beside you can really be a life-changing experience.
The first year I participated in NaNo, I didn't go online and make an account, and it was brutal. The second year, just being able to go online and chat with others going through the same writing struggles was able to give me that extra edge and push myself further as a writer and an artist.
I don't know what I would do without NaNoWriMo, or the Office of Letters and Light that runs it.

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

a boost of self-confidence as a writer and an artist, and knowing that I have the capabilities to get things done if I truly put my mind to it. This experience has truly changed my life.

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

Make more people sign up for it. Anyone could write a good book if they wanted, and NaNo is definitely the way to go if you want results.

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