Have you heard of NaNoWriMo? If you haven't - check it out, now! Every November, writers all over join together to write a novel (National Novel Writing Month). There's even a version for your students! Why am I bringing this up NOW, you may ask? 1/3 of the way through November? Well, 2 reasons!
1) This is my first year participating in NaNoWriMo and I am writing my own novel
2) Writing a novel not your thing? Your little writers can get involved. The website has all sorts of resources you could need to get your students to write a novel! (Or you can always use this!) Let's be honest - it's not necessary to do this in November. January, March, or April work just as well! I LOVE how it pushes writers to keep going. Writing stamina these days is at an all time low, and NaNoWriMo encourages writers to push through that! What's not to love?
Have you written your own novel before? Have you used NaNoWriMo? I'd love to hear! Tell me more in the comments below!
