GrammoWriMo – Join Largest Number of Authors to Write a Novel Together

Nick Barron and his Grammarly team planned a pretty cool writing project during the month of November that I think you will like. Grammarly is an online grammar checker service,

As you probably know, thousands of writers sign up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) each year — essentially volunteering to write one 50,000-word novel from scratch in a month’s time. That’s a lot of writing for authors who may want to participate in NaNoWriMo, but are running short on free time.

In November 2013, Grammarly will throw its hat into the ring — but with a twist. They hope to get the largest group of authors ever to collaborate on a novel. They’re calling the project #GrammoWriMo, and they published a blog entry here (http://www.grammarly.com/blog/2013/nanowrimo/) to provide additional information about participation.

Anyone may sign up. I signed up.  Join us now before October 25th.

#GrammoWriMo Participants must write between one sentence and 800 words (their choice!) when it comes their turn to contribute to the novel. They want to ensure that the writing process is fun and does not become a chore for them.

Participants will have the satisfaction of participating in NaNoWriMo, while connecting to one of the most extensive writers’ communities in the world. If we are able to sell the e-book at its completion on Amazon.com, we’ll donate proceeds to a writing-related charity.

The Grammarly team also announced that Gayle Brandeis (a published NaNoWriMo author) will be contributing the first and last lines to our group novel: http://www.grammarly.com/blog/2013/best-first-lines/

I did NaNoWriMo two or three times. You are considered a winner if you write 50,000 words during the month of November. To join it, go to http://nanowrimo.org/

Look for good things today.
