Event Type:Adult Library Programs
Participants in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) attempt to write a 50,000 word novel during the thirty days of November, and this workshop provides the tools you need to succeed at this endeavor. Includes pre-NaNo exercises and prep, as well as tips and strategies to help you during the thirty-day writing frenzy. We’ll go over options and exercises to help you plan your novel, and importantly we’ll also cover “life prep and planning” which will help you address the myriad of non-writing challenges you’ll face during NaNo.
Be sure to check out the NaNoWriMo class on October 3 at 10 a.m. You can register for the class HERE.
