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.
NaNoWriMo is almost upon us. If it sounds like a tall order, that’s because it is. But if you have the imaginative spark inside you, the write-ins we are planning are just the thing to help you reach the 50,000-word finish line.
NaNoWriMo kicks off at our branch officially on Saturday, November 3rd at 2:00 p.m. with speakers, and maybe even a little inspiration. Weekly write-ins will be held on Monday nights throughout the month of November at 7:00 p.m.
Each week we’ll start with an activity, and maybe even work our ways through to some story-swapping and constructive feedback.
In the spirit of participation, our whole staff is collaborating to put together our own Cozy Mystery. We can’t wait to hear what you think of our cast of characters.
