I skipped lesson 1. I work at a high school, and for the last two years I’ve done NaNo with a group of students (with varying degrees of success). There is a separate website for school-based NaNo programs called NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program. I can’t manage two tracking progress on two sites, so I use this one, though to be honest, it’s a bit lonely. I’ve noticed a lot of students will create an account, log a goal, and then never log in again. I imagine this happens in the adult world, too.
