The National Novel Writing Month takes place annually starting November 1 and ends on November 30. The month-long commitment for writers enables them to write a 175 page novel which is roughly comprised of 50,000 words.

It is strongly encouraged that you also upload your word count at the end of the day. The novel is expected to be turned in between November 25 and November 30. So what’s in it for the very industrious writers joining this very creative endeavor? Well it is the first step in getting yourself noticed in the cut-throat business of the literature world. There’s also a handsome winner’s certificate and web badge in store for the deserving winner.
