Welcome to #SinC50K National Novel Writing Month Challenge!

Join Sisters in Crime and NaNoWriMo for the #SinC50K National Novel Writing Month Challenge!

NaNoWriMo, an acronym for the National Novel Writing Month, is an annual event started in 1999.  It takes place in November with a goal of 50,000 words written during the month. The NaNoWriMo organization helps you reach that goal through online community, badges for participation and other events to support you as you get that draft done!

Use NaNoWriMo to start a new draft or to finish a work in progress.

      • Set a goal of 50,000 words drafted during the month of November (or be a NaNo Rebel)

      • Get tips and hints for how to manage and meet your writing practice

      • Join special SinC50K virtual write-ins and social media “word wars” to meet your word count

      • Share your progress and celebrate milestones with your fellow Siblings

As a Sisters in Crime member, you’ll also have access to a series of NaNoWriMo-focused webinars and encouragement from your community—and a special virtual event just for SinC50K participants.
