Does Novlr integrate with NaNoWriMo?

No more manually entering your word counts on the NaNoWriMo home page!  You can now sync your project from the Novlr app directly with your NaNoWriMo project.

We know how big a month November is for many of you and so have made it easier than ever to take part in National Novel Writing Month while maintaining your distraction-free writing space. Simply select which novel to sync with NaNoWriMo and your word counts will be updated automatically every day at midnight, or you can force sync anytime with the click of a button.

You’ll find the “Sync to NaNoWriMo” button in your Integrations tab. Make sure you’ve created and declared a NaNoWriMo project through the NaNo website for whatever event you want to participate in.

Once you click the sync button, you will be asked to authenticate your NaNoWriMo login details (these details are never stored on our server – it is authenticated directly with NaNoWriMo through a unique token stored on our server).

After you’ve authenticated and selected which of your Novlr projects you want to sync with NaNoWriMo you’re all set! Every 24 hours your work will sync with the NaNo servers, or you can click “Force sync now” whenever you like. Each sync will update your NaNo word count so you never miss logging a writing day.

One less thing to do for NaNoWriMo. More time saved for your writing!
