What is NaNoWrMo, you ask?

Let the writing begin
Let the writing begin

NaNoWrMo starts today. What is NaNoWrMo, you ask. It is National Write a Novel in a Month. It was started by a group of College friends in Berkeley, California in 1999.

Before I let them tell you about themselves, I want you to know that this is my third year to participate. I feel the most organized and ready to write my novel.

My novel is called; “They Paved our way: Ancestors that helped shape a Nation.”

I will be posting snippets of what I write over the next month; about the journeys of some of my ancestors that help grow this  nation to the country it is today.

Now here is NaNoWriMo’s story in their words.

They can tell their story best. Hers is what they say from the NaNoWriMo Facebook page.



You’re in for a month of literary abandon with NaNoWriMo, Camp NaNoWriMo, and the Young Writers Program! Are you up for writing a novel in 30 days? We think you are, and we’re going to help you get there.
