November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and what better place to write your novel than at the library? That’s why we’re inviting all NaNoWriMo participants to “Come Write In” the library throughout November. Whether you’re a NaNo veteran or a first-time WriMo, you’re welcome to “come write in.”
Writing a novel is a pretty big deal, so for those who want a jump-start, we’re hosting a kickoff planning session on Saturday, October 31*, from 10-noon in the Robbins Library Conference Room. Work on your outline, do some research, figure out your words-per-day goal**, pick up a free NaNoWriMo bookmark, and meet other writers!
**50,000 words divided by 30 days equals 1,667 words per day; if you want to take Thanksgiving off, your goal is 1,724 words per day.
Of course, WriMos are welcome to use the library anytime it’s open (see Hours & Directions). We’ve always got free wireless, power outlets for your laptops, library laptops you can check out, individual study carrels, tables for group work, private study rooms, and plenty of books, newspapers, and databases for research and inspirational purposes.
But writing can be lonely, and it’s nice to have company, especially when you’re trying to churn out 50,000 words in a month! So we’re hosting “Come Write In” sessions every Saturday in November from 10am-2pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room.
