"Write in November" challenges students & employees to 10,000 words

Write On! Creative Writing Club is hosting “Write in November”. The event is a modified version of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) which asks writers to compose 50,000 words during the month of November.

Write On!’s “Write in November” challenge has a similar goal to NaNoWriMo, which is to get words on the page. For its event, Write On! has set a goal of 10,000 words (about 20 double-spaced typed pages). Individuals meeting the goal at the end of the month are eligible for prizes awarded by Write On!.

What to write:

  • Anything! The type of writing isn’t important; putting words on the page is. Reaching 10,000 words is the goal.
  • Many people use this event as an opportunity to create a first draft of a text they’ve been thinking about or intending to write.
  • The document can contain one long writing or many short writings.
  • Fiction and non-fiction writing are both accepted.
    • Examples of fiction writing:
      • Novels/novellas
      • Short stories
      • Poetry
      • Screenplays
    • Examples non-fiction writing:
      • Journaling
      • Writing letters
      • Recording family or local stories
      • Recording local or world events


  • The contest is open to BCCC students, faculty, and staff.
  • The writing must occur between Nov. 1 at 12:01 a.m. and Nov. 30 at 11:59 p.m.
    • Pre-planning ideas is okay, but all words counted for the contest must be written in the month of November.
  • Topics must be appropriate for the college environment.
  • No editing, revision, or document formatting is required.
