NaNoWriMo is the term given to the movement (and the organisation that supports it) that aims to encourage people to have a go at writing a novel. It stands for ‘National Novel Writing Month.’ Every year, it is growing in popularity with eager writers in primary schools, secondary schools and beyond taking up the challenge.
If you have always wanted to try and write a novel, but lacked the motivation or guidance, this could be for you! Check it out and let me know if you decide to do it – I would be happy to help you with brainstorm or drafting as well!
There are quite a number of key literary terms and concepts out there, and we come across these unfamiliar terms quite frequently. This is a nice glossary to consult for reliable and useful information (much better than the Internet, which can be quite inconsistent!).
