National Novel Writing Month 2018

It is said that we all have a book in us. If you’re ready to start exploring the story you might have to tell, November is the month for you!

Join the National Novel Writing Month challenge, and try to write 50,000 whole words in the thirty (30) days that make up November. It sounds impossible, or at least a little impractical – and frankly we can’t argue the latter. But it’s also a whole bunch of fun! There’s a robust local community of wrimos (a wrimo, of course, is a NaNoWriMo participant) that cheer each other on.

When your book is finished and you’re thinking of publishing it, why not try self-publishing? The library has a great ebook formatter, and with Self-e, your book can become part of a national collection of Library Journal Selected Reads!

The library is a great place to  Come Write In! Check out the scheduled write-ins for the Main Library and the River Center Branch:
