KWL US Manager Christine Munroe interviews Grant Faulkner, Executive Director of NaNoWriMo. They discuss:

*National Novel Writing Month, the creative challenge in which authors write 50,000 words during the month of November, or 1,667 words per day.

*The origins of NaNoWriMo, which began with 21 people in 1999 and has grown to support hundreds of thousands of writers each year.

*Why November? If you can write a novel in November, you can write one anytime. It's a busy time of year leading into the December holidays.

*NaNoWriMo's other initiatives, including Camp NaNoWriMo and the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program.

*Even if you don't "win" by hitting the 50k word count, every participant is a winner for choosing to make creativity a priority.

KWL is a proud sponsor of NaNoWriMo for the third year in a row. Stay tuned as we embark on this challenge in November with our annual KoBoWriMo team!
