Write a novel in November

Greetings from the Writer in Residence office! Hopping into the blog to send a wave of support to everyone who is taking on the challenge of writing a novel during National Novel Writing Month (also known as NaNoWriMo) or any other time of year.

What is NaNoWriMo?

National Novel Writing Month is a fun, empowering approach to creative writing. The challenge being to draft an entire novel in just one month.

Why do it?

For 30 wild and exciting days, you get to lock away your inner editor, let your imagination take over, and just create! Sounds easy right?!

Who can join?

Anyone age 13 and up can register on the official NaNoWriMo website

There's also a Young Writers Program for anyone 17 and under. You will also find information for families and educators there.

No idea how to get started?

Try this simple outline made popular by the folks at PIXAR. 

Join me!

If you sign up for NaNoWriMo – be sure to come find the amazing Regina Wrimos. We're a welcoming and supportive group.

You can also meet us at live write-ins each Saturday in Nov from 12:00pm to 2:00pm in the Community Commons at the Central Branch.

Happy writing!
