Many writers are counting down the days. In fact, they have just 21 left until October ends and they take the challenge.
No, they won’t be writing novels in November, although many aspiring and published fiction writers do. They will be writing all types of nonfiction during National Nonfiction Writing Month (NaNonFiWriMo), best know as the Write Nonfiction in November (WNFIN) Challenge.
Rise to the Challenge
You, too, can rise to the challenge during November. You can start and finish a work of nonfiction—an essay, article, query, proposal, report, manifesto, or book—of any type or length in 30 days. WNFIN is a personal challenge, not a contest. It’s about you meeting your own goals and achieving your potential.
All it takes is a decision. Make up your mind to devote November to writing that nonfiction project that has been in your head. Decide to get it out of your mind and onto paper—in 30 days or less.
