The NaNoWriMo '11 Contest
|Nov 30, 2011
It's November again, and of course that means that everyone's going to be busy with NaNoWriMo!
For those of you who've never heard of it, NaNoWriMo is a free challenge where writers try to start and finish a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. It's a big challenge, but a fun one too. Thousands of writers from around the world participate—and you should too!
Since so many people are going to be busy with NaNoWriMo, for this contest we want you to submit the first chapter of your NaNoWriMo novel. We know it probably won't be your best writing—after all you'll be busy with an entire novel's worth of material—but the rawness is part of the fun, and everyone will be on the same playing field.
To enter, submit the first chapter of your NaNoWriMo novels. (Any other novel you may be writing or have already written doesn't count—only NaNoWriMo chapters may apply.) The first place winner wins $50 cash via Paypal, and the second place winner wins $25 cash via Paypal. Good luck!
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
