Y’ALL it’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s WRITING TIME.
If you’ve ever wanted to write a novel, or needed an excuse to spend 30 solid days completely entrenched in your own mildly obsessive hobby, or been curious about what it might be like to go gently and temporarily bonkers, National Novel Writing Month is for you.
Hang out with the Red Stick Wrimos, Baton Rouge’s own group of extreme November novelists, every Sunday at the CCs on Jefferson, or on Thursdays at the Main Library on Goodwood! Check the November Source for other library-focused writing events, like the Jones Creek Fiction Writers Workshop on the first and third Thursdays of every month.
To “win” NaNoWriMo (there are no prizes but the glow of accomplishment, but oh, WHAT a glow it is), all you have to do is write 50,000 words in the month of November. You can write a whole novel! You can go rogue and write a bunch of essays! You can finally write the Batman fanfiction you’ve always dreamed of! (People do!) It’s a glorious time to let your creative juices run wild all over the rest of your life.
Come write with us!
