During November I will be writing a 50,000 word manuscript and be out around Melbourne mingling with other NaNoWriMo participants.
NaNoWriMo is a great chance each year for writers around the world to commit to getting a lot of words down on the page (or screen).
Not only will I be writing 50,000 words but I will be setting the story in Ghana and writing it for publication as an ebook to help the work of worldreader.org, which is about to start a year-long trial in Ghana of their program to bring ereaders and ebooks to all people in developing countries.
I will be posting an article on my NaNoWriMo experience every 3 days throughout November.
I have also set myself the challenge of contributing 100 hours of time and effort towards the work of worldreader.org in the period of Nov 1st – Nov10th: the 100 Hours in 10 Days Challenge.
Good luck to everyone participating in NaNoWriMo 2010.
World literacy and worldwide exchange of ideas is a worthy goal and if you are seeking a literary or literacy based charity to contribute to, worldreader.org and Room to Read are both recommended by The Australian Literature Review.
