Joining the rest of the Okanagan Wrimos and writing 50,000 words in the 30 days of November? Follow these easy steps to get started:

1.  Go to www.nanowrimo.org and create an account.  Then fill out your profile to connect with like-minded writers like you.  NOTE:  You must be 13 years of age or older to participate!

When you create an account, you’ll be able to:

  •  Plan your novel.
  •  Join a local group of writers and attend in person writing events.
  •  Receive online encouragement from staff and published authors.
  •  Access a worldwide community of writers in our online forums.

2. Once your account is created at the NaNoWriMo website, create your novel (you might need to come back in October to do this).

No, you don’t write your novel on the NaNoWriMo website, but you do need to give your novel a title (don’t worry, you can always change it later!).  Go ahead and share a short novel synopsis and excerpt, while you’re at it!

3.  Join our local NaNoWriMo region right away.

Be sure to select Canada:: British Columbia :: Okanagan as your Home Region!

Choose us as your home region to get updates on local events from your volunteer Municipal Liaisons Deborah and Angelika. Once you’ve selected your region, your Regional Lounge will appear with the forums.

4.  Come find us on social media!
