Novels You Know That Came From NaNoWriMo

What's National Novel Writing Month? Let us tell you! National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo began on November 1, and is the month where established authors and aspiring writers take the challenge to buckle down and pen a full-length novel. Whether you're a rookie or a veteran, though participation is not an easy task. The goal is roughly 1,667 words per day, 11,669 words per week, with the grand total of 50,000 words due by November 30. 

Piece of cake, right?

To inspire you all, let's look at a few books that were completed during NaNoWriMo. Not only did books including The Night Circus Water for Elephants , and Fangirl reach the finish line, they reached the pinnacle—publication. Some even turned into motion pictures.

Who knows? Perhaps your NaNoWriMo book could wind up on this list someday. Which ones do you recommend? Let us know in the comments!


Technically, Gods From the Machine  didn't come from NaNoWriMo, but the sequel sure is! It's currently being written, with the first chapter excerpt found on this blog! Or if you're too lazy here's a link to the good stuff
