How and when can I sign up? When do I start writing?

You can sign up at any time, year-round. To participate during National Novel Writing Month, which takes place every November, just click on the “Sign Up” button on the homepage.

You can announce your National Novel Writing Month novel usually beginning sometime in September, and start writing at the stroke of midnight on November 1.

We also host Camp NaNoWriMo every April and July, during which you can tackle any writing project, novel or not.

You can also create an independent writing project and goal, and track your progress anytime of the year!
