Today is November 1, which means it’s the first day of National Novel Writing Month. I am live-blogging this post from the community room at the Robbins Library, from our very first “Come Write In” of the year! There are already
two three other writers here, so if you signed up for NaNoWriMo, don’t drag your heels – come write in!
We’ve got a big basket of books about writing, including Gail Carson Levine’s Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly, Walter Mosley’s This Year You Write Your Novel, and of course Strunk & White’s classic The Elements of Style. We’ve also got bookmarks, scrap paper, comment sheets, power outlets, and brain food (i.e. leftover Halloween candy).
Still need a nudge? Check out this list of novels that were born during NaNoWriMo and are now published books.
Writers are welcome to work at the library any time we’re open, of course, but if you want to meet other “WriMos,” come to one of our Write Ins – every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this month (except Monday 11/11, which is Veterans’ Day). Check the calendar for specific times and locations.
