What is NaNoWriMo anyway?

Do Now:  (Answer in your Writer's Notebook)
                What does it mean to be creative?

 If you did not get to this yesterday:
  1. Sign up for NaNoWriMo.  Visit their site and look for the sign up link on the upper right side. Write down your user name and password.
  2. Give me your NaNoWriMo information. I will collect your user name to track your progress. You can give me your password too IF you think you might loose it or forget it.
 Your questions and some facts:
  • You will learn about a new element of novel/fiction-writing during each class period.
  • You may not officially start writing the novel until November 1, and must stop on November 30.
  • You can set your own word-count goals.
  • Quantity is better than quality until editing begins in December.
Now I have some questions for you:
??Inner Editor??

Homework:  Bring in your FAVORITE novel. (Not picture book.) This should be a book you read and loved. It could also be a novel that a parent or teacher read to you that you loved.
