NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, and takes place annually from November 1-30. During this time, writers can challenge themselves to write a novel (50,000 words or more) before the month is through. On their website www.nanowrimo.org, writers can register for NaNoWriMo and have access to lots of great resources including coaches, reminders, word counts, and more, and can also get in touch with their local writing communities.
