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

Rating: 5 stars  

A friend had recently completed 50,000 words in 2009 and encouraged me to join in 2010 as she knew I loved writing but never had the drive to continue. To start, I was nervous - unsure about plot-lines, if my character's were strong enough - however, she assured me it's not all about the qaulity and it can be revisited in December. I started Nanowrimo pumped with the idea of 50,000 words written down, my own words. The month was hard work, but well worth it. By the end; my fingers ached with typing, my head felt it was exploding with idea's and my school notebook was becoming a plot book - I would go into lessons and end up writing my own story down instead of notes. I encourage everyone I now meet and know of to join Nanowrimo and to particpate in this amazing event and I'm defaintly going to rock Nanowrimo 2011!

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

2010.

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

I would not make any changes to this non-profit organisation - the e-mails from my local municipal liaison's were encouraging and great, the events they planned helped me meet loads of great new people, and overall, it's one of the things I look forward to the most in my years to come.
