Attention, writers! November – a.k.a. National Novel Writing Month, a.k.a. NaNoWriMo – is upon us! (We warned you this would happen. Winter is coming, and all that.)
You can learn all about NaNoWriMo (and sign up for free) at nanowrimo.org. There, you can connect with other writers (WriMos), get inspiration from past participants and published authors, and join forums.
More of an in-person sort of person? The library has got you covered! We invite you to “come write in” (we just love that wordplay) throughout the month to work on your novel and meet other WriMos. Write Ins are in the Community Room on Tuesday evenings from 6-9pm and in the Conference Room on Saturdays from 10am-1pm (except for the first Saturday, which is the Arlington Book Festival, which you should totally come to also).
Bring your writing tools (brain, pencil and paper, laptop, invisible ink, Quick Quotes Quill, etc.) and use our tables and chairs, power outlets, wifi, and many many books and databases. 50,000 words in 30 days may be crazy, but we believe you can do it!
