So thanks to A Purse Full of Cheerios, I found out that this is National Novel Writing Month. I'm a little bit late to this party, but I figured I'd post about it anyway. This wonderful site is a cool opportunity young writers to transform themselves into novelists!!
What's even better is that they have educator resources for the entire class to participate in the process. The goal is to encourage kids writing larger bodies of work and really build their writing stamina. Sounds like something teachers do at school...(cough, writers workshop, cough). I'd be interested to see how this works out for an entire class or maybe that student who loves writing and wants to be challenged.
Anyway, if you would like the chance to write your own novel in the month of November, don't worry, there's a site for your inner novelist.
