One of the most celebrated events of the month has already begun, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a month long event held to inspire and encourage writers everywhere to write a novel. The goal is to complete a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month but even if the goal isn’t met, NaNoWriMo still provides inspiration and progress for the future. NaNoWriMo has an amazing community that brings everyone together to inspire, educate, and grow with. It’s loved by many writers across the nation, but unfortunately conditions such as carpal tunnel and arthritis can hinder this experience.
