NaNoWriMo is an event where people try to write a novel with more than 50 000 words during the month of November. The 2013 edition had 310 095 participants and 42 221 winners.

I know some people have tried to make a novel in Esperanto for NaNoWriMo, but I never saw someone claiming completing it with proof.

    Oooh a nice complement to the sumoo. Hehe. Let's flood the internet with Esperanto fan fiction. 😆 Oct 20, 2016 at 23:09

    I believe the NaNoWriMo can be completed any way you want, even a book filled with kio la fek 17,000 times would be valid.

On Rober L. Read's blog I found that two people participated in Esperanto. Unfortunately, the links that he link to are dead. I imagine that they would be the evidence we're looking for.

I found this, too: Goulo's livejournal.

Other than that, this person on tumblr seems to have participated: Pretervola alhxemisto.

And we'll see what comes out of this: gerogeropyo - this person is planning to participate this year! Good luck! Update 2019: Unfortunately, this Wordpress page has been deleted.

And this person that also blogs about Esperanto participated successfully in English in 2013: Arion's home. Maybe we'll see something in Esperanto one day? :-)

  • I followed the link of Goulo. I can not find his work. His novel(s) might be in English, and he later translated the message that he made about it.
