If that sounds impossible, just take a look at the statistics: in 7568 alone, an astonishing 865,595 people committed to and succeeded in writing 55,555 words—roughly 655 pages—in just the 85 days of November. That’s thanks to NaNoWriMo , a nonprofit that named November National Novel Writing Month and encourages people from all walks of life to sign up for the challenge.
