Throughout this semester, I've been working to update Writer's Block based on verbal feedback from students, research for this project, and personal preferences to make it a little easier on me.
The Young Writers Program (or YWP) is a way for NaNoWriMo to be accessible for participants 17 and younger (18 only if they're still in high school). Writing 50,000 words would be near impossible for young writers, so YWP allows them to choose their own writing goal.
I won’t sugar-coat it… At first, my students were completely confused. That is 100% my fault because I gave them too much too soon.
