Writing frenzy! Inspiring writing through NaNoWriMo ~ Fractus Learning

Writing frenzy! Inspiring writing through NaNoWriMo ~ Fractus Learning | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

"It is September once again, and soon November will be upon us. For millions of people around the world that can only mean one thing - National Novel Writing Month! Known as NaNoWriMo, it is a month long challenge to write 50 000 words of that novel you have always dreamed about. What is not as well known, however, is its partnership program, theYoung Writer’s Program (YWP).


"The YWP also runs during November, and is a challenge for people under 18 to write as many words as possible. They choose their own word count goal depending on how fast they can write and what a reasonable challenge would be. You ‘win’ NaNoWriMo and the YWP by achieving your goal. It doesn’t matter if it is the world’s most brilliant novel, or if you got stuck half way through and needed to add purple ninjas and pet zombies to get it going again, you win simply by writing."

I have not participated but I am considering it. It is exciting to know students can do so also via the Young Writer's Program. Excellent! Share.

"If you’ve been reading this blog for a while now, you may remember that last year at this time we were enthusiastic participants in a collaborative push to get as many people as possible to take to Twitter on Oct. 20, the annual National Day on Writing, and post messages with the hashtag #WhyIWrite.

 

"Thousands did, and it was a thrilling and memorable day for us, as students, teachers, novelists, poets, historians, journalists, comedians and ordinary citizens of all kinds posted thoughts to a vigorous stream.

 

"So, of course, we’re doing it again, except this time our wise collaborator, The National Writing Project, suggested that the hashtag be #WhatIWrite, and that, because Oct. 20 is a Saturday, the day to post to Twitter be Friday, Oct. 19.

 

"So along with the National Writing Project and the National Council of Teachers of English, we invite you (and your students, and everyone else you know) to post on Oct. 19, with the hashtag #WhatIWrite."
