How do I create a goal for an existing project?

To create a new goal for an existing project, click on your project title, which takes you to the project page. Here, you will see your previous goal.

Click on the button that says “Create New Goal

A window will pop up where you can set  your new goal. It will default to starting at today’s date, and 50,000 words.

For November, to have your progress count towards a win, leave the default number there. For Camp events or personal challenges, you can set your own word count goal.

If you want your goal to count towards a NaNoWriMo event, make sure to check the box that says “Associate with a NaNoWriMo Event”. This will lock in your dates for the event and guarantee you are eligible to win. Skipping this step will result in not qualifying for a win, even if you reach or exceed your goal. Don’t forget to click “Save Goal”!
*Do not check this box if you are creating a personal goal!

Congratulations! Now you have a new goal and can update your word count as soon as the goal is active!
