Are you ready for NaNoWriMo?
November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. Perhaps you’ve wanted to write a book for a long time but haven’t found the right time to do it. With the weather transitioning into winter, there’s no better time than now! The goal is to write at least 50,000 words by the end of the month. The challenge starts today, November 1, and runs through November 30. That’s an average of about 1,667 words per day. It’s difficult, but it can be done. Lots of writers have written a novel during NaNoWriMo and gone on to publish the book and achieve success.
If you like to write but don’t want to write fiction, you can also be what we call a NaNo Rebel. To be a NaNo Rebel, you need to write 50,000 words of something other than a novel, such as in short stories or nonfiction. Even if you aren’t writing a novel, completing 50,000 words in a month is an accomplishment to be proud of.
If this interests you, give it a try! The library can help by offering lots of books on the writing process. If you’re taking the NaNoWriMo challenge, be sure to email Brian at the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know how it’s going.
