Grammarly Writing Group Publishes NaNoWriMo Novel

grammarlyLast November a group of team members at Grammarly, the online site dedicated to proofreading, wrote a novel during National Novel Writing Month.

This week the group published their book The Lonely Wish-Giver: A Grammo WriMo Novel on Amazon. The eBook is available for $.99 and all of the proceeds will be donated to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The book was written by around 300 writers from 27 countries. They called the project #GrammoWriMo. Collectively, the team wrote 130,927 unedited words, almost three times the goal of the challenge’s 50,000 words. Follow this link to read our interview with the group about their experience writing as a team.
