National Novel Writing Month

In case you didn’t know, today is the start of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). It is during this time when people challenge themselves to write a 50,000 word novel.

Some of your favorite YA authors have participated in NaNoWriMo and have written the first draft of what would become some of your favorite books.

 

How do I participate in NanoWriMo?

If you are a writer, or just like a challenge, you should try to write your own NaNoWriMo novel. You can do it by yourself or you can become a part of the NaNoWriMo community. All you have to do is sign-up for free using an email address at nanowrimo.org.

 
Not only can you track your word counts and get support from other NaNoWriMo participants, but you can also find great resources to help you through this challenge.

 

The Library is rooting for you

We are excited to help you with this amazing feat. Every Wednesday of November from 4pm to 5pm we will be opening the computer lab for anyone who is participating in NaNoWriMo.

 
Also, don’t forget that the library is full of awesome resources  to help get you started or get you through the rough patches.

Good luck!

Writer’s Cafe @ Greenfield Today

Yes, you too can drink coffee & make stuff up today at HCPL from 4-6pm! Enjoy a relaxing space to take your novel to the next level. Writing prompts will be available if you get stuck.

Start channeling those creative threads, and I’ll see you at 4!

Author Fair Success! & National Novel Writing Month

A big thank you to all who came out for our Author Fair yesterday! We had a great crowd for both the Children’s & Teen panels. You guys asked some great questions, and our authors offered great tips on writing, creating illustrations, publishing, and getting your work out into the world! I hope you all feel inspired to start creating your own stories. We’ll be doing a lot of writing programming at the library in November for National Novel Writing Month, and I hope you all will join us in the fun!

Sign up for free and participate in Young Writers Program of National Novel Writing Month here: http://ywp.nanowrimo.org/ – You can set your word count goal, find fellow writing friends, and keep your novel writing on track. It also gives you daily dares to include in your novel such as Your character’s piggy bank has been stolen, Make one of your characters purchase a costume, Include a parade or a circus in your next chapter, and many others.

Sarah S. and I will be participating in the adult program – writing 50,000 words!!

Start your outlines and developing those brilliant plots and characters, guys!

 

Sarah, currently thinking about what amazing story she will write 🙂
