    At this point in the month, you're probably pretty done with everything. Your fingers hurt, your eyes hurt (turn down that computer screen brightness!), your plot has hit a wall. All remaining first-week enthusiasm is gone, replaced by the vague sense of doom. You can't do this. You'll never finish this darn novel. Why couldn't you just be out enjoying the summer like a normal person?

    Hey, fellow NaNoers!

    Writing is a joy that many people don’t know about. I used to look down on writing as a strange occupation. When I was younger, books were something you read, not something you wrote. I can’t remember what possessed me to sit down and start doing this captivating thing, or why. I only remember that I fell in love with it.

    Dear Writers,

    We write the stories of tomorrow.

    In April, we asked you to help us make the Young Writers Program even better.

    We wanted to know about the impact that NaNoWriMo has already had on you as a writer, plus how much more you could accomplish with the new website we plan to launch in 2015.

    Thanks so much for all your amazing feedback. It helped refine our long-term plans and directly shaped our upcoming campaign for the new YWP site.

    The Stories of Tomorrow campaign will run from June 9 to June 23. During that time, we hope to raise $50,000 from NaNoWriMo participants and other funders. All of that money will support the future of the YWP.

NaNoWriMo begins in
