My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA
National Novel Writing Month is a brilliant group. The community that can be found among writers is always a strange one (in a good way!) but the community that it's possible to build through NaNo, with the hectic, craziness of the month of November and the insane drive that calls so many writers back for more every year is impossible to capture adequately in words.
Nanowrimo brings people together; when I first started doing it in my freshman year of high school, it was with a small group of classmates who thought the idea was cool. As time has progressed, I've found that no matter where I go, there's always someone who has heard of Nanowrimo, and it makes an excellent Nice To Meet You type icebreaker in social situations.
I've written a novel in a month. What have YOU done with YOUR life?
Nanowrimo is amazing.
The forums, the people, the idea. All of it. Every single heartbreaking, hope-filled minute nanosecond. It's worth anything.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my everyday life, once a year, each November.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
keep it the same; nano knows what it's doing.
