NaNoWriMo - short for National Novel Writing Month - is a free annual event for all those with literary aspirations. During the month of November, participants attempt to write 50,000 words worth of novel. All the while, they receive pep talks from published authors, communicate with fellow participants on forums, and keep track of their daily word count on the site.
The RESTful NaNoWriMo Word Count API enables users to access word count information for use in external tools or apps. Types of information available include current individual wordcount, individual wordcount history, site wordcount, site wordcount history, regional wordcount, and regional wordcount history.
Sara Gruen did it. Erin Morgenstern did it. So did Kelley Armstrong. And so have hundreds of thousands of other men and women around the world. They attempted to write 50,000 words of a novel in 30 days.If you were going to join NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writer's Month) and participate (better hurry: starts November 1), what would be your most important tool? A computer? A pencil and paper? A cup of coffee? None hold up against that most direly needed tool...NaNoWriMo's word count API.
