Film a video about NaNoWriMo for Project for Awesome!

Just in case you aren't sure what to do with all this free time you suddenly have now that NaNoWriMo has ended... maybe you'd like to make a video about NaNoWriMo for Project for Awesome!

You can get the full details about P4A on their website, but here's a quick recap:

During Project for Awesome, December 9-10, thousands of people post videos about and advocating for charities that decrease the overall level of world suck. The P4A community promotes and votes on these videos and raises money for the charities.

Support NaNoWriMo by making a video for P4A:

  1. Film a video about how NaNoWriMo has changed your life, or about how it's making a more creative world.The P4A website has some great tips on how to make a good video. (Scroll down to "Video-Making tips.") Key suggestion: aim for 2-4 minutes.
  2. Upload your video to your YouTube account on December 9th.
  3. Submit it to the P4A website after 9AM Pacific Time on December 9th, and tag it with NaNoWriMo as the charity name. (Please use NaNoWriMo so we can find all videos with one search!)
