NaNoWriMo 2017: Write a novel or a movie script with Ulysses

NaNoWriMo is an excellent opportunity for aspiring novelists to turn their dreams into reality. The developers of Ulysses for Mac, iPhone and iPad believe it’s also a great opportunity to get a discounted subscription to their brilliant writing app.

NaNoWriMo is a digital challenge where hundreds of thousands of authors from all over the world commit to writing a novel of at least 50,000 words during the month of November. Ulysses has been a sponsor of NaNoWriMo for four times, but this year is the first time the company are giving participants the opportunity to try the app not only on Mac, but also on iPad and iPhone, without any restrictions. So, if you’re an aspiring writer, you can use every spare minute to achieve your average daily goal of around 1,700 words, to the point of writing while waiting for the train, the bus, the plane. Thanks to a seamless synchronisation via iCloud, you’ll be able to switch between devices without ever having to worry about your setup.

The special NaNoWriMo trial of Ulysses will run until December 7, 2017, and afterwards switch to read-only mode with export still enabled. To make on-boarding to Ulysses as smooth as possible, the developers offer a free introductory video and a dedicated email course for beginners. If you want to keep using Ulysses after NaNoWriMo has ended, you can claim a discount of 15% off Ulysses’ annual subscription (it’s a limited time offer that ends on December 31, 2017).

Further information on the offers can be found on the website. Information about NaNoWriMo itself can be found on
