"National Novel Writing Month organizes events where children and adults find the inspiration, encouragement, and structure they need to achieve their creative potential. Our programs are web-enabled challenges with vibrant real-world components, designed to foster self-expression while building community on local and global levels."

Last November, I wrote the first 50,000+ words of a novel, completed in just one month, as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and my bucket list. I was able to do this because many people invested in my literacy development when I was younger. Being able to read and express myself through writing has allowed me to succeed academically and professionally, and I hope to pass that opportunity along to others.

Because I feel strongly that every person should have the opportunity to read and write, I'm raising money to help the nonprofit that runs this writing event to do the following:

  • Value and encourage all writers' voices. I know everyone has a story, and NaNoWriMo helps each person share theirs.
  • Provide free curriculum, workbooks, and virtual tools to students and educators in 2,000 classrooms.
  • Guide 700+ community leaders in building vibrant, writing and literacy-focused environments in their local neighborhoods, libraries, and bookstores.

You can help by:

  • Making a valued and appreciated donation to this page! (donations go directly to National Novel Writing Month and are tax-deductible)
  • Spreading the word, and sharing this page with your friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, or email.

Thank you so much for your support! I'll be posting updates about my fundraising progress on my sponsorship page and bucket list blog (thegoallist.wordpress.com).
