Are you tired of being a One Day Novelist, as in "One day I’ll write a novel"? If you have always considered writing a book, November is the month for you. November is National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo), the endeavor where each participant cranks out 50,000 words of fiction in just 30 days.
Writing, in my opinion, does not take talent but imagination. Some writers can put the pen to paper (or hands on keyboard) and a story will pour out of them like water to a glass. Others, like myself, can hammer out a few solid pages of awesomeness, quickly doubt themselves, and throw it away. No matter how far I get, the outcome is always the same. It is a story that bloomed in my mind, was sure to be terrific, and ends up not being more than a few paragraphs.
Did you know that the Buckner Branch has a Young Writers' Club? We meet once a month on the 3rd Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Our kids have all sorts of fun writing adventures here at the Library. This coming November we will embark on the most awesome writing adventure ever! We will attempt to write a novel in one month. Okay, maybe not a very large novel; we are young writers after all. To accomplish this feat, there will be 3 write-ins at the Buckner Branch on the following dates:
During National Novel Writing Month this November, words by the millions will fly off the keyboards of literally thousands of novelists, young and old, all over the world. The challenge to complete an entire novel, start to finish, in one month is hard to resist.
Every November, thousands of writers across the globe pick up their pens for NaNoWriMo—National Novel Writing Month. Though the official goal of the event is to write 50,000 words by the end of the month, the most important thing is simply to write. So, are you all excited and ready to rock?
I have embarked on the insane adventure that is NaNo for the sixth year in a row. For those of you who have not heard of it, NaNo(WriMo) stands for National Novel Writing Month. Every November people all over the world try to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.
