    Any parents of NaNoWriMo 2015 participants?

    One of my daughters has signed up for National Novel Writing Month, which starts November 1st. Are there any others here? Are there any parents participating?

    I've always loved the thought of NaNoWriMo, but I've never done it myself. Still, it seems like a great writing challenge! I wish you daughter the best!!

    My daughter did NaNoWriMo for a few years, but has now aged out. It really helped with motivation for writing. She also met all kinds of virtual "friends" and received great support through the forums. (She's now a creative writing/journalism major!!)

    I've never done it myself.

    We did it! DD reached her November goal yesterday, 51K words so far, and I did the day before, 52K words so far.

    It was great fun, it was outrageous, and it was free! We'll probably do it again next year.
