"NaPlWriMo is challenging and supportive and nerve-wracking. Since my time is so constricted at the moment, it's the one time of year when I can plan to set aside time to work on nothing else (creatively), but writing a play.
I went in to the event thinking I was going to be writing a script in a very particular way - I thought the play was pretty straightforward. Twenty pages in I realized I had something very different and it took me all month to figure out what it was. It was humbling and yet, the support I got from the other writers and from reading the experiences and struggles everyone else was dealing with allowed me to just sit it out and keep working even though it became clear that I wouldn't finish.
I've been inspired by Dorothy's enthusiasm, her drive, her intelligence, her compassion, her humor, and her thoughtfulness - which are all reflected in the way the event is run. It's why I was hooked in the first place and why I want to participate again. I find it so amazing that I could be so affected by another artist and we've never even been in the same room!"

"Not only did I get a play out of NaPlWriMo, I got a production ! My play THE HONEST-TO-GOD TRUE STORY OF THE ATHEIST opened a mere seven months after I crossed the finish line.",
Dan Trujillo, New York
"NaPlWriMo got me off my rear and put me on a firm schedule to get my one-act completed. As a naturally lazy person,it's just what I needed to improve my work habits."

"I had no idea what I was getting into! I've never drank so much coffee in my life!"
