Young Writers Program

Apparently, November is National Novel Writing Month. Who knew??

NaNoWriMo is a writing challenge where you write a novel in 30 days. The word count goal for adults is 50,000 words (yikes!). But, the Young Writers Program allows participants 17 and under to set their own word-count goals.

The website also offers free workbooks (elementary, middle school and high school levels) to help walk kids through the writing process.

Ryan (my ambitious child), has decided that he would like to participate in this challenge and has set a goal of 10,000 words. Oh. My. Goodness. He might not get anything else done in November! I'm glad that he has shown interest in this, but I also hope he has the perseverance to see it through to the end.
