So, what the heck is NaNoWriMo, anyway?

Next month is National Novel Writing Month. That’s right-many thousands of people all over the world will be striving to write a novel-length manuscript in just one month. If you’re one of them, we’re here to help!

Did you know your friendly neighborhood library is now a place for writers to meet up and work on their novels? It’s true! We’re now an official location for nanowrimo

And our creative writing club, Just Write, will be meeting twice in November. We’ll be supporting all you aspiring novelists out there with an hour an a half of writing time as part of a welcoming, encouraging group. Our first meeting is on Monday, November 14 at 6:30 p.m.

We’ve got online resources to help you work at home, too! Do you like learning visually? Then Lynda.com has a terrific tutorial on crafting stories. You can see it here. Please sign in with your library card and a password of your choosing.

Do you get frazzled by the mechanics of writing? Do tenses, moods, and subject-verb agreement make you cranky? We’ve got help for those problems, too! Khan Academy has many lessons on how to put sentences and paragraphs together, and it’s absolutely free!

If you’re writing memoir or nonfiction, you can use our databases to check your facts and do preliminary research. And, whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction, don’t forget how inspirational books can be! You can search our catalog right here! catalog

Novelists, researchers, and readers, have a great November! We’ll see you in the library!
