You win NaNoWriMo by reaching your word-count goal between November 1 and November 30. There’s no limit to how many people can win, and there are no judges! Just make sure to update your final word count before December 1, whether by typing in the writing space or inputting your word-count number (depending on which setting you chose in your novel settings).
There are no prizes, either, but you can check out your winner page for some digital swag. And, if you want a copy of your novel, we've partnered with Blurb, a self-publishing company, to offer YWP participants a special NaNoWriMo landing page, a free ISBN, and 30% off your first order. Use the PDF download from the writing space for a simple process, or get creative. Read our how-to suggestions, or publish your novel now.
