National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo, began in 1999 with the ambitious goal of writing 50,000 words in thirty days. Even amid a pandemic, NaNoWriMo is still happening this year with a twist, it is all virtual. The event is slated to begin on November 1st. However, every great work starts with planning. Begin now with the NaNo Prep 101. This prep work takes you through the steps to be ready to write your 50,000 words in November. Take on a new task each week and print out your completion certificate at the end of your preparation.
