Description Edit | History

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word first draft of a novel by midnight, November 30.

http://www.nanowrimo.org/

There's no sign-up fee for National Novel Writing Month.

The way to win NaNoWriMo is by writing 50,000 words by midnight on November 30. Every year, there are many, many winners. There are no "Best Novel" or "Quickest-Written Novel" awards given out. All winners will get an official "Winner" web badge and a PDF Winner's Certificate.

The actual winning process works like this: From 12:00:01 AM, local time, November 25 until 11:59:59 PM, local time, on November 30, all participants who have written more than 50,000 words can have their winning word counts verified by the site. Uploading your novel to the Word Count Validator makes your NaNoWriMo victory official, gets you listed on the Winners Page, and routes you to the secret spot where you can collect this year's winner's certificate. It will also turn your word count bar purple.

Many, many winning novels have been written through NaNoWriMo. Here are the stats stats:
