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

Rating: 5 stars  

During the 30 days of NaNoWriMo I wrote a novel. I know a lot of people did, but I am terrible for procrastinating. I've always wanted to write a novel, and finally after some gentle nudging from a friend I dove into NaNo head first. After 28 days of hard graft I sat back and marveled that a novel had appeared in front of me.

I thought about how comparatively easy it was. It had been easy to write a novel in 30 days. Then I realized what made it easy: The website, the staff, the regional liaison, the graph on my personalized page, the forums, even the little sticker on my laptop that said "Noveling machine".

The Office of Letters and Light deserve any and all assistance they get. So even though I was unemployed and in a tough spot I dug deep into my paypal and gave them 10 dollars. NaNoWriMo gave me the gift of a novel, they affirmed my place on this earth as a writer and the very least that I could do, was give them whatever I could.
