Inspired: Join Me for National Novel Writing Month

Join National Novel Writing Month in November

Join National Novel Writing Month in November

This November, I am taking up the challenge to write the first draft of my first novel. With the help of National Novel Writing Month, I’ll write 50,000 words in 30 days to tell a story that’s been brewing in my mind for almost 5 years. It’s not doing anyone any good in my head so better to have it on digital paper. If you plan to participate, please let me know so that we can encourage each other along the path. I’ll be blogging about my progress as well sharing insights from my writer brain as the process unfolds.

National Novel Writing Month is an online community that provides support and a platform to get and give support as writers barrel through the process of a first draft. Last year over 600,000 writers took part in the event.

About Christa Avampato

I make a living in business and I make a life as a writer, artist, and yogi. I use my business and storytelling skills to build a better world. My first novel, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be published in the Fall of 2017 by Thumbkin Prints, a children's and YA imprint of Possibilities Publishing Co. My creative career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, program, and events to help people live happier, healthier lives. A recovering multi-tasker, I am a proud alum of UPenn (BA) and the Darden School at UVA (MBA). When not in front of my Mac, I’m on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I am proud to New York City my home, and I've been called the happiest New Yorker by friends and strangers alike. They're right. Follow my adventures on Twitter at and Instagram at
