Each writer’s goal will be different. Think about their writing experience, ages, schedules, and enthusiasm for NaNoWriMo. Their goals should be difficult but still achievable; inspiring, not discouraging. For some people, that means a goal of 1,000 words - for others, 100,000! We encourage young writers to adjust their goals throughout the month. Look to the Word-Count Goal How-To for more information and a suggested word-count guide.
