You may think that aromatic quality in the air is due to the change is season, but really, it's something else-creativity igniting all around you. Next month is November, widely known as National Novel Writing Month or Nanowrimo- the wild literary endeavor where participants frantically write 50,000 words of fiction in 30 caffeine-fueled days (and many nights). In October, writers begin their stretches and breathing exercises in preparation for this month-long marathon of words.
NaNoWriMo is a very funky abbreviation, which could mean anything if you had enough time and creativity. In this case, however, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. So, if you do have that extra time and creativity, you are in luck.
Every November aspiring writers, young and old, band together in the hope of producing 50,000 words in just 30 short days.

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:
You may be asking yourself about Meow Society. Is it for cats only? Do you learn strange new purring sounds? Do you learn how to get along with kittens? Well, it’s none of those things! Meow Society is a fun, growing group of kids who are sharing their writing here at the Red Bridge Branch.
