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

Rating: 5 stars  

NaNoWriMo is something I have tried on three separate occasions--and the third time's the charm! The month of November felt both too long and too short. There were days I wasn't sure I could write a novel at all, but somehow I made it through. The Office of Letters and Light have a wonderful organization, and it was thanks to their passion for this crazy cause and their crazy good web presence that I managed to make it to the finish line. The message boards in particular made a big impact on me. It helped me get out of the house to meet with other writers, which in turn helped me get a little more competitive with my word count. The whole concept of NaNo is absolutely outrageous, and I love it--along with a whole bunch of other people across the world. This is definitely something I will participate in, hopefully for years to come.
