A NaNo Rebel is a NaNoWriMo participant who chooses to write something besides a novel of at least 50,000 words from scratch in November. Some NaNo rebels choose to continue a novel by invoking the Zokutou clause, while others wander into the worlds of nonfiction, video games, scripts, and academic writing.

The NaNo Rebels forum was created in 2009 to give the rebels a discussion area. Before NaNo Rebels were officially recognized, some veteran Wrimos who chose to continue a work in progress opted to invoke the Zokutou clause, an unofficial clause that justifies doing this, while others worked on other non-novels without calling themselves a NaNo Rebel.

The NaNoWriMo Guerrilla Rebellion

In 2001, when the signup deadline/cutoff came before the end of October, some latecomers to the NaNoWriMo web site declared that they were going to write their novels anyway. They formed a multi-user blog for mutual support and tried their hardest to reach 50,000 words, though only a few succeeded.

The NaNo Rebels forum

The NaNo Rebels forum was formed as a space for participants who were bending the rules of NaNoWriMo.

Forum Description

"You're writing a memoir, a script, a nonfiction book about turtles or something else that's not a novel. You're a NaNoRebel, baby! Converse with your fellow outlaws here."
