November is National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo!
Because of our stringent schedule, I cannot have the entire class participate in NaNoWriMo, but I would like to offer extra credit to students who participate.
Sometimes we simply need a bit of motivation to help our writing come to life. Sign up for NaNoWriMo here and get started.
Need more incentive? Check out this blog post.
To receive the extra credit you must show me the badges you have collected during the month of November, as well as your completed novel.
You will not receive credit for only a few pages of writing.
