Writing shouldn’t just happen one month a year, and if challenges like NaNoWriMo are what get you moving you’re in luck! During your 2 month stay at Camp NaNoWriMo in April and May, you can write at a more leisurely pace. You can set your own word-count goal over 10,000 at any time during each monthly session.
One of the best parts of Camp NaNoWriMo is that all types of writing, not just novels, are allowed and encouraged! You can also choose to be placed into a digital “cabin” where you can meet new writers and participate in critiques and sharing sessions.
Here is the FAQ page for Camp NaNoWriMo and NaNoWriMo: http://campnanowrimo.org/faq
While we won’t be hosting any events at the library, we do encourage you to visit us and write in our cozy cubbies, in our sunny cafe (that might still have a view of a small snowy mountain range), or on our quaint couches.
Come April, I’m writing short stories. What about you?
As for graphic novel reviews, I’m almost finished with The Wrenchies by Farel Dalrymple, so look forward to that next time! Here are some things that I really like right now that you should check out.
