NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writers Month

It used to be a fun project to encourage people to write a novel each year during the month of November.

Today, they used their mailing list to send out an "abortion is health care" email.

I'm done.

I deleted my account a few months back. Hadn't been active much since they changed the software anyway. They have been getting more and more woke. Their DEI statement https://nanowrimo.org/dei contains a mix of positions, policies and initiatives some of which might be neutral but others of which are definitely against what the Church teaches.

There might be some Catholic writers' groups on Facebook or somewhere that you could join, although sometimes the numbers just aren't sufficient to do a NaNo type event. But you never know.

Do you think, Father, that it is worth your effort to inform the project of your opposition?

I went to the Nanoo web site, and was greeted with the diversity statement. Bad as that was, I scrolled to the bottom and found one of the two sponsors is the California Arts Council/A California State Agency. Well, this explains everything.
