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

Rating: 5 stars  

On October 31, 2010, I sat up eagerly, waiting for the bell to toll 12, and for NaNoWriMo to officially begin. As it did, I began my frantic race to finish 50,000 words, and, on November 28th, two days before the deadline, I did! NaNoWriMo was an AWESOME program. I've never ever been able to finish anything before, and with the NaNoWriMo staff's constant encouragement, I finally did. I mean, really. I went on the site everyday to find tips, encouragement, and to ask questions. I love absolutely everything about it, and I'm psyched for next year. Seriously, anyone who has ever toyed with the idea of being an author should look into NaNoWriMo. See you next year in the forums!

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

Both one of my closest friends and I finished NaNoWriMo successfully, and I am getting ready to send in my book to be self published. I know I never would've finished without NaNoWriMo.

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

Change nothing, except maybe I would advertise it a little more. I have a lot of friends who are interested but have never heard of it.

Role:  Volunteer & Wrote a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.
