NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s free to join and any writer can participate. You can be a new writer, experienced, or somewhere in between. The goal is to write 50,000 words in one month: November. Why 50K words? That specific amount is considered a novel, and the goal is to write a novel.
Antagonist: The antagonist (also called the villain) stands in the way of the protagonist from achieving his/her overall goal. A villain can also be an inanimate object that is possessed, a political faction, a terrorizing animal, or anything else non-human. There can be multiple types of antagonists, but usually one will stick out most.
Protagonist: the main character. Even if your story is told from multiple POV, there will be one main character that stands out above the rest. It’s the character that your story opens with in Chapter One and ends with in your last chapter.
Manuscript: a story that hasn’t been published yet.
