An open letter from NaNoWriMo

23 Oct

Thank you for opening this briefing. This message will self-destruct in five minutes.

You are receiving this transmission because we have a task only you can handle. Intelligence has it on good authority that there is a novel inside of you: a story so crucial it must be shared with the world. Your mission, if you choose to accept it: write your novel in 30 days. Code name? Operation: Power-Up.
 
As always, NaNo HQ is in the sky and on your shoulder, ready to guide you through.
 
Assemble Your Team: Get Sponsored
This mission is not a one-agent job. You are authorized to keep your friends and family apprised of your progress, and encouraged to establish an inner circle. Consider engaging that inner circle in your mission by asking them to sponsor your novel through StayClassy and support your march to success.
 
Establish Your Supply Lines: Help Earn $10,000 for NaNoWriMo and the YWP
Our partner agency, Goodsearch, has committed up to $10,000 to encourage the creative cause this November. How can you help?
  1. Download and install the Goodshop button for your browser.
  2. Make a purchase from their more than 3,000 online vendors, including Amazon.com, by December 31. November provisions such as caffeine and candy have full HQ approval.
  3. Goodsearch will donate $5 and 20% of your total purchases to NaNoWriMo and the Young Writers Program.
Get kitted out to ensure the success of your mission while supporting the creative mission of young writers in classrooms the world over. That’s the kind of team player that earns medals.
 
Meet Your Handlers: Seek Advice from Published, Veteran Authors
We’ve lined up a series of published authors to guide you through your trials, tribulations, and triumphs via our Twitter account. Beginning on Monday, October 28, authors like Teri Brown, Jason Hough, and Kristyn Kusek Lewis will take over @NaNoWriMo to provide the advice, inspiration, and intel you need.
 
You have our support, you have our faith, you have the fate of a world in your capable, authorly hands.
 
(Please pretend this email exploded with a small puff),
 
Tim Kim
Editorial Director
