news16053102  Do you know NaNoWriMo? It stands for National Novel Writing Month. It is an event that happens every year in November. It begins on November 1st and ends on November 30th. Children and adults spend all of November writing their own novel.

あなたは「NaNoWriMo]を知っていますか?それはNational Novel Writing Monthの略です。それは毎年11月に行われるイベントです。それは11月1日に始まり11月30日に終わります。子供も大人も自分自身の小説を書くために11月の全てを費やします。

 I think it's a great event because you can work at your own pace and you can decide everything about your novel. You can even decide how long you want it to be. That means that if you have a lot of time you can write 50,000 words. Or if you don't have much time you can write 3,000 words. It can be non-fiction, fantasy, horror; any style is ok. It's a lot of fun, and it can help you English and your critical thinking. It is also a good chance to be able to express your ideas and use your imagination.

 There's also a lot of support from the NaNoWriMo community. You can see schedules that may help you with time management. You can see ideas for how to make better characters or how to talk about your setting.
さらにNaNoWriMo communityから沢山の支援があります。あなたは自分の時間管理を手伝ってくれるかもしれない予定表を見ることができます。あなたはどのように、より良いキャラクターを作るか、また、どのように自分のセッティングについて話すかアイディアを考えることができます。  Translated by M.N 中2
