NaNoWriMo with HML


It’s time to write YOUR novel! HML is so excited to be hosting an all inclusive NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) group. Find resources, community, inspiration and so much more in this group (we’ve gone all out). There will even be prizes for different word count levels like branded NaNoWriMo mugs, totes, t-shirts and a priceless GRAND prize for those who complete their book (we are going to hook you up with a published author who can give you some tips on how to publish). We can’t wait to help you write your book! 

Interested? E-mail and let us know your NaNoWriMo user name (so we can add you to our group) and where you reside (you must be able to pick up your prizes-we will not be mailing them).

NaNoWriMo Virtual Write “In”
Saturday November 14, 1:00-3:30pm

Knock out a few thousand words with friends! Spend the afternoon writing your book with Jen and Ariel. We will have writing prompts to help you out with your story’s progress, be there for general support and help answer questions like “if you were in a diner and a centaur came in, how would you react as a patron?” We will be here for the heavy hitters. It will also be a good way to celebrate word count milestones and win some great prizes. We will “see” you on Zoom!

Get rewarded for your effort! This year we will be giving prizes to those who hit word count milestones. Check out the NaNoWriMo store to see what you could win for these milestones.
