Little House of Crafting helps NaNoWriMo



November is just a day away!! Did you know that November is National Novel Writing month? I didn't until I met Toni of Little House of Crafting. She is an avid reader, writer and supporter of writing for all ages. She is setting forth to help others know more about writing. I hand over my blog for her to tell you a little bit more! Welcome Toni!! 

November is National Novel Writing Month!



Little House of Crafting is celebrating National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo, by helping to raise money for The Offices of Letters and Light. The Offices of Letters and Light organizes events where children and adults engage in  the creative endeavor of creative writing. Events consist of NaNoWriMo, NaNoWriMo Young Writer's Program and Camp NaNoWriMo, during which NaNoWriMo can be completed in the summer months as well.

The NaNoWriMo challenge is to write 50,000 words in the 30 days of the month the member is participating in. That averages out to about 1,667 words per day. The writer is not alone in this challenge! Once signed up with a free username and password, NaNoWriMo members can customize their profile page, upload a novel cover, post an excerpt from their novel and much more! NaNoWriMo has a fantastic forum where members can join a regional forum with other writers in their community to attend a kick-off party, attend write-ins and attend the Thank God It's Over (TGIO) party at the end of the month. NaNoWriMo also enables you to have writing buddies so you can keep track of how your new friends are doing on their novels. You can read more about NaNoWriMo, or make a direct donation to NaNoWriMo here.



Little House of Crafting's Keep Calm and Write On pinback button was created to encourage the continuation of writing as a whole and in honor of NaNoWriMo. 50% of the sale price of this clip will be donated to The Offices of Letters and Light on December 1st in Little House of Crafting's name. The design is also available in magnet form for no additional charge!



The Keep Calm and Write On pinback button is professionally printed and made in the Little House of Crafting studio in Southeastern Michigan. The pinback buttons have already been made and will typically ship the next day! Creation of the magnets will take 1 business day prior to shipping.




This pinback button is great to wear on a lanyard, purse, bag or shirt. The magnets are secured by hand to the back of the button after the pin has been removed. The magnets are very strong and can hold up to 8 pieces of paper. You can purchase the clip in Keep Calm and Write On pinback button in Little House of Crafting's Storenvy shop.



Toni Conn, the owner of Little House of Crafting, will be participating in NaNoWriMo this year, as she has continually since 2007. Find out more about her novel and her progress here.

There is still time to help out Little House of Crafting with her cause to help out The Offices of Letters and Light -  stop by and purchase the pinback button or the magnet to help fund the month of literary abandon! Thanks!
