NaNoWriMo is coming soon

National Novel Writing Month is coming. It’s the crazy month when tens of thousands of novels are written all over the world. In 2009, this: 167,000 people, a word count all around the world of 2,427,190,537, and many people “winning” at something they never thought possible. Here at our school, the eighth graders noveled 175,514 words. We hope you’ll join the Class of 2015, this year’s eighth graders, as we all write novels.
