How to Participate in WNFIN/NaNonFiWriMo

Participation in the Write Nonfiction in November Challenge (WNFIN), or National Nonfiction Writing Month (NaNonFiWriMo), is very simple. It operates on an honor system…no word counts logged in here or even official registration. It’s a personal challenge, not a contest.  So this is really up to you. You just rise to the occasion. You grab the opportunity to start and finish a work of nonfiction in 30 days. You take the challenge. (Learn more about WNFIN here.)
