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

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently completed writing a 50,000 word novel during National Novel Writing Month. It was a terrific experience! I had always wanted to write a novel and don't believe I would have accomplished this task had it not been for NaNoWriMo. I logged in every day and updated my word count total and there was always something new on the site that would lift me up and move me forward: a video, something to read, new cover art to look at, updates from other participants, etc. I received words of encouragement in my email inbox at regular intervals. Through the good times, when I wrote like I was flying and through the bad times, when I was slogging through confusion, the staff at NaNoWriMo was always there with a encouraging word.

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

helping me as a writer, obtain a goal that I've been interested in achieving for some time.

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

like to receive advance notice of additional events. I wasn't aware that there was an event that took place recently regarding synopsis of our novels until I happened to go to the site the day after it was over and found out about it. ( and just now when I went to the site I found out about editing month).
