NaNoWriMo Nonprofit Could Win a Project for Awesome Grant

The Office of Letters & Light, the nonprofit behind the National Novel Writing Month marathon, is up for a Project Awesome 2012 grant.  If you want to support the group, you can vote for the NaNoWriMo video at the Project for Awesome site.

Here’s more about the video: ”This is vitally important because we’re short of our 2012 break-even fundraising goal to bring NaNoWriMo back better than ever in 2013. Getting this grant would be the fundraising equivalent of writing 10,000 words on the next-to-last day of NaNoWriMo. To receive the grant, we need you to vote for a video about the Office of Letters and Light—by today’s deadline—made by the hilarious musical Wrimos, Debs and Errol. The charities promoted in the top five videos split all of the money. As of now, we’d get a percentage of $180,000, and that figure is rising!”

NaNoWriMo writers counted a collective total of 3,288,976,325 words this year–215 million more words than last year. We also rounded up 30 NaNoWriMo Tips for Writers that work all year round.
