Preparing for the Month Ahead and a Kick-Off Party!

hemingpizzaIt’s that time of year again, and you know what that means don’t you? It means that the library is having another NaNoWriMo Kick-Off Event! NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and the goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. We hope you will use the library to write your greatest novel yet!

Our kick-off party is tomorrow, October 28th at 6:30 PM in the Levenson Room. Local author Jeff Deck will be here to give an intro to NaNoWriMo and will be leading a writing boot camp. Bring your laptop, because one of the exercises is to write 500 words in 20 minutes. Think you can do it?

We will also have free pizza, courtesy of Flatbread Company!

You can sign up for NaNoWriMo HERE. We will also be showing people how to sign up at the event.

And here are a few helpful links to get you psyched (or to frighten you, or to help you prepare) for the month ahead:

Writing tips from George R. R. Martin and Robin Hobb (buzzfeed)

NaNo Prep (NaNoWriMo.org)

The 46-Question Character Questionnaire (NaNoWriMo.org)

And, finally, if you can’t think of anything else to write you can always write these books (buzzfeed)

Enjoy your last 4 days of October! I am participating again this year, so if you have any questions regarding the library’s NaNoWriMo programs or if you need help signing up for NaNoWriMo, you can call me at 603-766-5124.
