We’re proudly sponsoring NaNoWriMo – and invite participants to use Ulysses for free!

When I first heard about NaNoWriMo, I found it hard to believe. People commit to write a novel of 50.000 words in only one month? Hundreds of thousands of people, without a perspective to publish, just for fun? Later, my astonishment turned into fascination. I realized: They’re right. It is the writing that makes you a writer. That’s why Wrimos write during November, even if it’s hard and sometimes painful.

Writing 50,000 words in a month is a lot, and inspiration alone won’t get you there. As a Wrimo, you also need an iron will, sufficient time – and the right tool. A tool you’re feeling comfortable with, because the two of you are going to spend a lot of time together. A tool that’s easy to use, because you just won’t have the peace and quiet to read whopping software manuals. (Has anyone, eventually?) A tool that is powerful enough to let you keep track of your text even if it grows longer – because this is definitely going to happen during November. In short: Wrimos need Ulysses. And that’s why we’re inviting them to try it and write their novel with Ulysses – and that for free. Our dedicated NaNoWriMo trial of Ulysses for Mac is immediately available and can be used until December 7 without any limitation.

NaNoWriMo is about passion for writing, so is Ulysses, and we’re aiming to introduce Ulysses to more passionate writers. NaNoWriMo’s conditions are perfect for putting Ulysses to the test. To make onboarding even easier and help Wrimos to make the most of the app, we also offer a free tutorial e-mail course and an introductory webinar.

Writing A Novel with Ulysses

And that’s not all: The first 200 Wrimos to make the jump and purchase either Ulysses for Mac or Ulysses for iPad, are eligible to receive a free copy of David Hewson’s e-book “Writing A Novel with Ulysses”. It’s a hands-on guidebook for aspiring novelists by someone who knows his business in and out. David is a bestselling British mystery author, who has published over 20 novels, and whose books have been translated into more than 25 languages. His guide covers all the aspects of Ulysses a writer needs to master in order to produce a finished book. For more information, please visit ulyssesapp.com/nanowrimo.

So, dear reader of this blog, are you one of the brave writers who are going to set forth to write a novel in November? We’re wishing you all the strength you need to stand through this, with Ulysses as a loyal companion by your side. Good luck!

P.S. If you’re not a NaNoWriMo participant but a Ulysses newbie keen to learn all about it, please feel free to register for the e-mail course and the webinar as well.
