Kobo is proud to be an official sponsor of NaNoWriMo and last week we opened our doors to 25 aspiring novelists. We received a great response from interested NaNo writers in Toronto and our own KoboWriMo team. We provided writing fuel (pizza and candy) and everyone got right to work. In two hours, our 25 participants wrote a whopping 47,000 words! One fast writer managed to get 5,670 words down in 2 hours. It’s really impressive to see how people can write and how writing in a group can really encourage creativity. We even had one writer doing NaNoWriMo freehand!
