Want to Write A Novel? Try NaNoWriMo!

national novel writing month logoLove novels? Write one!

Some call it the “writing world’s version of a marathon”: thirty days, 50,000 words and one original novel. You can join in on the fun with hundreds of thousands of people around the world during the month of November for the transformative, fun-filled challenge known as NaNoWriMo.

During the month of November, we’re opening up the library’s main meeting room every Saturday (except the 30th), so NaNoWriMo writers can drop in and write any time between 2:00-5:30pm. Bring your preferred writing tools, whether it’s a pen and paper or a laptop, and work on your novel surrounded by other local writers and all of the library’s resources. Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be available during the writing sessions for NaNoWriMo writers.

For those of you who want to get started early, we’re kicking off National Novel Writing Month with a Plot Party on Saturday, October 26th at 1:00pm. Learn what NaNoWriMo is (and how to say it), create an outline or storyboard for your novel, name your characters, build your world, and bounce ideas off of other local writers.

No registration required.

For more information, contact our NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison, Elizabeth Halvorsen at halvorsenea@gmail.com.
