Welcome to SacNaNo!

Have you ever dreamed of writing a novel?

November is National Novel Writing Month, a free annual event helping to motivate writers to start and complete a 50,000 word novel in thirty days.

The fun began Saturday, October 22nd, at the Panera Bakery on El Camino Avenue, located at 3328 El Camino Avenue in Sacramento, with a two hour “Meet and Greet”, where we just hang out and meet each other. The official Kick-Off happened on Halloween at 9:00 at the home of one of the great people of this region. And throughout the month we’ll have write-ins and other events all throughout the Sacramento Valley for your fantastic noveling fun.
